Amy JACKSON, President of AMCHAM Korea
In 1953, the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea (AMCHAM Korea), was founded as the largest domestic economic organization with the purpose of promoting investment and trade between the two countries of the U.S. and South Korea. Comprised of 900 corporate members reaching through 31 different industrial fields, AMCHAM Korea is a partner for Korea's economic development, that has kept pace with Korea's economy and history.
In 2009, Amy JACKSON took office as President responsible for managing the day-to-day operations and activities of the Chamber. As former Deputy Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Korea, Amy JACKSON is a trade expert with extensive networks in both the U.S. and Korea who has been associated with Korea since 1990.
The U.S.-Korea economic relations has emerged as a core issue in economic cooperations of the 21st century. This week on “Heart to Heart,” we meet Amy JACKSON, the President of AMCHAM Korea, which works as a bridge of communication between the U.S. and Korea, and discuss about the coexistence and development of the two economies.
