The Korea Post used to cover the Commercial Counselors and Officers very fully, almost as fully as the Ambassadors. This is because the Commercial Counselors play a pivotal role in bridging gaps between Korea and their countries—immeasurably contributing to the promotion of important interests of the two countries.
Now, we have resumed covering them fully—using all five media outlets of The Korea Post, 3 in English and 2 in Korean.

In the July issue, we also start covering Korean companies overseas. The governments come and go, each after duration of five years of their life span.

The Korean businesses should try to widen the range of their international cooperation—and Peru seems to be one of the best countries to expand their business activities to.
For one thing, Peru has a very rich historical-cultural assets, including Machu Pich, Cuzco, Chan Chan, Cercado de Lima, Nazca Lines, Caral, Sacred Valley of the Incas, Chavin de Huantar, Arequipa and Lake Titicaca.
