Dear Colleague, The 6th International Trading Conference (ITC 2016) will be held in Ulsan on October 25th, 2016 and bring together oil producers, refiners, international traders, and Financial experts, as well as academia from around the world to discuss global energy market trends and strategies for expanding the North East Asia oil market. Many changes have occurred in the global energy sector during the past decade. At ITC 2016, the main theme is centered on the interconnections between the energy market and financial technology, addressing the current issues in this low price oil market. The ITC has been highly esteemed as the premier venue for exchanging information, engaging in discussions to share expertise and is therefore a perfect opportunity to network. In Ulsan, known as the industrial capital of South Korea, oil tankers and port infrastructure have been under construction on a large scale, and accordingly, active discussions are underway on how best to create synergy in traditional energy trading through state-of-the-art finance infrastructure. We expect that the facilitation of the North East Asia Oil Hub project will help boost the currently depressed national economy. We cordially invite you to the ITC 2016, which is co-organized by Ulsan Metropolitan City and Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), and sponsored by Ulsan Port Authority (UPA). We would be very pleased if you could honor us with your presence.

Mayor, Ulsan Metropolitan City Gihyeon Kim President, UNIST Mooyoung Jung
