Antwerp hopes to attract significantly more trade from Korea in future, while KITA for its part sees Antwerp as the gateway to Europe for its exports. "In 2015 we sent 77,000 TEU of container freight to Antwerp. Trade between Korea and Belgium can and must be expanded, and the port of Antwerp has a significant role to play here," declared Mr. Kim Jungsoo, executive managing director of KITA.
