The Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce is planning a business mission to Korea in May and is inviting metro Atlanta companies to come along. 

The trip’s main goal is to “recruit, retain and expand companies” In the county’s target industries: advanced manufacturing, headquarters and professional services, health sciences, information technology and supply-chain management. 

Participants will also be able to expand their own network through introductions to Korean prospects and participation in cultural experiences. 

The trip costs $4,950 including Korean Air flight on the giant Airbus A380, or $8,950 for business class. Both packages also include five nights at the Intercontinental Grand Seoul Parnas in Gangnam, a swanky area of the Korean capital city. Meals, transportation, tickets for tourist attractions and other expenses are included. 

Gwinnett in 2009 established a sister-community partnership with Gangnam on one of the county’s first official trips to the Asian nation. 

The chamber has frequently engaged in overseas missions, especially to Asia and Europe. Chamber officials announced during a trip to China and Japan in August that four new companies would invest in Gwinnett.
