Seoul - The American Chamber of Commerce in Korea (AMCHAM) announced on Monday that it will dispatch a delegation to Washington, D.C., this week. The aim is to foster the business and trade relationship between South Korea and the United States.
According to a new release by Yonhap News Agency, the delegation led by Chairman James Kim will meet with approximately 30 officials from various divisions of the Joe Biden administration. These include representatives from the White House, Department of Commerce, and State Department during their annual "doorknock" visit from Tuesday to Thursday.
