The current economic slowdown in China has dampened outlook for Korea, which has been heavily relying on the Chinese economy. Korea's exports have already taken the brunt of declines in Chinese demand, contracting for 14 months in a row. Along with the export slowdown, Korea's industrial output and domestic demand have also shown weakening signs. Aware of the seriousness of the situation, policymakers are striving to make effective policies necessary not only to tide over the current challenges but also to improve the long-term competitive edge of the Korean economy. At this coming lecture, we will be able to hear about their efforts as well as communicate our perspectives to them. For this reason and more, I ask all SFF members to please attend.

As always, your confirmation of attendance would be very much appreciated.

Sincerely yours,

Sang-Woo Kim
Executive Director
