Many of these products represent major trends and the future of consumer technology in terms of design and future-forward functionality.

"I'm extremely pleased to have the opportunity to discuss possible manufacturing partnerships with next-generation companies from Korea," said Larissa Van Duser, President of The Winthrop Group Inc. "This is the perfect time for buyers to take advantage of the positive trade relations between South Korea and the US, especially as Korea is producing some of the most extraordinary, innovative products, in categories from consumer electronics to health and fitness to personal care."

For years, South Korea has been on the rise towards becoming a global leader in the production of innovative, high-tech consumer products. Now, at the Korea Trade Show NY 2008, buyers can experience firsthand a wide array of such emerging products, such as ultrasonic surface cleaners, wearable speakers, and super-definition digital screens.

In light of the business background of South Korea's new leader, President Lee Myung-bak, the country has been boosting efforts to improve trade relations between South Korea and the US. Mr. Lee visited the US in mid-April to discuss various issues with American officials, highlighting trade relations between the two nations.

"South Korea will further consolidate the traditional friendship with the United States," said Mr. Lee before he arrived in New York.

As a result of Mr. Lee's trade vision and South Korea's Free Trade Agreement with the US, prices at the Korea Trade Show 2008 will be favorable for buyers, as government support allows for price advantages and manufacturing discounts. "Our government is making a lot of deregulations, lowering corporate taxes to make a nation where foreign companies can invest and work easily," said Mr. Lee in New York.
