What is FLOR/KOR?
Florida/Korea Economic Cooperation Committee, Inc. (commonly known as “FLOR/KOR” for short) is a statewide
public-private partnership created in 1982 dedicated to promoting trade, investment, education, tourism and
friendship ties between Florida and Korea. To accomplish its mission, FLOR/KOR works in close cooperation with
the Korea-U.S. Economic Council (KUSEC) and the Korea International Trade Association (KITA) in Seoul, and
locally partners with the Office of Florida Governor and economic development organizations throughout the
state, including Enterprise Florida
What does FLOR/KOR do?
FLOR/KOR serves as a point of contact and facilitator for Florida traders,
investors and professionals seeking business opportunities and the development of ties in Korea with Korean
companies and organizations. Delegates from Florida to the Joint Conference programs with KITA/KUSEC must be
active members of FLOR/KOR to register and participate.
Through programs and events statewide as well as
the joint conference programs with KITA/KUSEC, FLOR/KOR helps identify and promote business opportunities in
Korea, and provides a forum for discussing key bilateral issues, exchanging ideas and assisting one another in
promoting mutually beneficial business, education, tourism, cultural and friendship ties with Korea.
Through its formal relationship with the Korea-U.S. Economic Council (KUSEC) and the Korea International
Trade Association (KITA), FLOR/KOR also provides its members access to key figures at the highest level of
business, industry, and government in Korea - valuable contacts not normally available to an individual
Florida business person operating on his or her own.
FLOR/KOR works in close partnership with the
Executive Office of the Governor, the Governor’s Office of Tourism, Trade & Economic Development and with
Enterprise Florida and local economic development, international and Korea-related organizations throughout
the state to carry out its mission. It also plans, organizes and coordinates Florida’s participation in joint
conferences and events with KITA & KUSEC. In addition, FLOR/KOR organizes; supports and/or conducts Korea
related seminars and events statewide.
