The Korean-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Seoul was founded in 1981 to promote economic relations between Germany and Korea as well as strengthening the relationship between the two countries.
The organization is currently the second largest national chamber in Korea and the trade between Germany and Korea increased from 1.5billion USD to 27billion USD since its foundation. Indeed, Mr. Wohler is at the center of this great achievement and he also made various efforts to raise the national brand and national image of Korea. His efforts are widely acknowledged so that he was given several well-deserved medals from both the Korean and German governments.
On HEART TO HEART, we’ve invited Mr. Jurgen Wohler to talk about the economic development between Germany and Korea, his love for Korean antiques and his view of education in Korea.
