As the fourth largest economy in Asia and with a population of over 50 million people, South Korea's increasing demand for high-quality goods and services has provided export opportunities across a range of Victoria's market sectors.

Since the Korea-Australia Free Trade Agreement (KAFTA) came into force in 2014, significant trade and export barriers have been removed improving access to the South Korean marketplace .
