Kim said: "We are proud to be able to bring MCI to Korea. We can see significant new business through this joint venture, which will bring great benefit to all our clients, partners and suppliers."

With the opening of MCI Korea, the group now has 11 offices in Asia.

 

MCI Asia Pacific president Robin Lokerman added: "A growing number of our global clients are interested in expanding into Korea, which is also home to many multinationals who can benefit from MCI’s global reach to manage their programmes outside of Korea. We have assembled a very strong team to develop our business in Korea and expect significant future growth."
