We regularly host many key U.S. government officials from various departments including State, Commerce, Justice, Homeland Security, USTR and others throughout the year.
Every year, an AMCHAM delegation visits Washington D.C. to meet with key officials and policy makers in the U.S. Administration and Congress, highlights the importance of the U.S.-Korea economic partnership and share issues in bilateral trade and investment.
AMCHAM members frequently engage with high-level Korean government representatives through public seminars and closed-door roundtable meetings.
