The council will be held in the International Conference Hall of Seoul Global Center.

    At the 50th council, about 20 advisory committee members, including CEOs of foreign companies, will ▵ share the results of the Foreign Investment Advisory Council over the past 20 years, ▵ appoint three new committee members for the council, and ▵ discuss ways to boost foreign investment and the economy of Seoul through women’s empowerment.

    The political agenda of this council will be “women’s empowerment.” As numerous multinational companies are increasing their ratios of female executives and making efforts towards gender equality, Seoul considers the leap to become “A City of Gender Equality” by empowering women as a necessary step for promoting foreign investment.
