The 3rd EXPO and the 4th EXPO were organised in October 2015 and 2016 in Sokcho City. Around 650 companies took part in the EXPO and export contracts amounting 26 million USD and 66 million USD were concluded respectively during the 3rd and the 4th EXPO.


GTI Economic Cooperation Forum was informative and fruitful with presenting on development of economic zone infrastructures, perspectives of maritime cooperation and transport corridors, transport and logistics issues as well as comprehensive research into economic exchange flows within the region focusing on economic interdependence as a paradigm.


GTI International Trade and Investment EXPO proves to be a practical mechanism to boost trade ties within the Greater Tumen Region where producers, exporters, importers and investors had yet another opportunity to show-case their products and expand their networking, and where public, private sector and academia had elaborate discussion and information exchange on policies and business trends.
