Mainland China and Korea have built a close business relationship for many years, and mainland China is the biggest trading partner of Korea. However, Korean government planned to imposed 4.43% - 15.71% anti-dumping duty on zinc-coated low-carbon steel wire against enterprises from mainland China in 2017.

In spite of this, most exhibitors from mainland China stated that mainland China and Korea had great complimentary needs in resources, labor, industrial structure, markets, capital, technology and corporate management. These factors have built a solid foundation for the bilateral FTA in the future. Therefore, what enterprises should do right now is to upgrade their products to make their products more competitive in the international market.

As the world’s 11th largest economy with a trading volume ranked 6th in the world, Korea plays a key role as a test-bed market and bridge to the Asia Pacific region’s major economies. It is estimated that in 2016 there were around 463 fastener manufacturing enterprises with an average output value of 8.8 million US dollars.

Through communication with the buyers on site, learned that the Korean average individual output value decreased in 2018. This was mainly due to the pressure imposed by the US and the increasing output value of overseas manufacturing enterprises. In particular, display device industry was rather depressed.

Walking around, found that fastener products displayed by Korean exhibitors were mainly automotive fasteners, while products displayed by Chinese exhibitors were mainly construction fasteners, such as gear rack, self-drilling screws and expansion bolt, etc.
