DPM Choo hosts investor roundtable in Japan
Aug 2023
Deputy Prime Minister of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MOEF) Choo Kyung-ho hosted an investor roundtable in Tokyo on June 30.

To expand the momentum of financial cooperation between the two governments to the private sector, the Korean government convened an investor roundtable presided over by a Korean Deputy Prime Minister for the first time in 17 years since 2006.

The meeting was attended by senior executives from ten major Japanese institutions including three major private banks (Sumitomo Mitsui, Mizuho and Mitsubishi), public financial institutions such as the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) and the Development Bank of Japan (DBJ), and Nomura Asset Management, Japan’s largest private asset management company.

In the meeting, DPM Choo announced the Korean government’s plan to issue yen-denominated foreign exchange stabilization bonds for Japanese institutional investors for the first time ever this year. It will provide Japanese financial institutions with opportunities to invest in Korea’s gilt-edged bonds while inducing Korean companies and financial institutions to issue more yen bonds. In addition, the government will organize regular meetings with major Japanese investors so that mutual investment can be facilitated beginning with the highly accessible and low-risk government bonds.
