Are you looking to import Korean brands into Singapore? Or thinking of expanding to Korea?

Korea’s restaurant sector commanded US$169 billion in 2015; 13% of the country’s GDP. There are 660,000 restaurants in Korea as of the end of 2015 (one for every 79 people), up 24% from 53,000 a decade ago. The restaurant sector has significant future opportunities.
