Dear Colleagues,

The 7th International Trading Conference (ITC 2017) will be held on October 24th(Tuesday) in Ulsan. This conference has become an international event that discusses trends in the global energy market by bringing together domestic and overseas energy market experts to address the oil hub projects in Northeast Asia.

In Ulsan, many issues related to building financial system have been discussed based on the infrastructures of logistics, storages, and port facilities for oil. In particular, the act on deregulation for oil, which was revised in April of this year, has provided the statutory basis for Ulsan to become an oil hub in Northeast Asia. We look forward that Ulsan will build an energy cluster in Northeast Asia and will be a center of global energy industry beyond the industrial capital of Korea.

While the stagnation of low oil prices is expected to continue, this year’s conference focuses on changes that technology development will bring to the energy sector as well as counterstrategies and plans to promote energy trading in Northeast Asia, under the theme of “Technology Innovation and Energy Commodity Market”. We hope that this event will provide an opportunity to find new growth engines in the energy market in the 4th industrial revolution era.

We cordially invite you to the ITC 2017, which is co-organized by Ulsan Metropolitan City, Ulsan Port Authority, and Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), and sponsored by the Korea Economic Daily. We really appreciate your attendance in the conference.
