“Our mission at Bloomberg News is to show that South Korea belongs to the world and the world belongs to South Korea,” said Matthew Winkler, Editor-in-Chief of Bloomberg News. “We have been in Korea since 1996, opened a state-of-the-art Seoul office last year, and provide news coverage for an increasingly sophisticated group of corporate and financial professionals in Korea.”
Chris Collins, Executive Editor at Bloomberg News for the Asia-Pacific region, said, “Corporations and institutional investors will find our new Korean-language news service invaluable, whether they’re making a split-second investment decision or looking for more perspective on the Korean marketplace.”
Bloomberg celebrated the Korean news service launch yesterday with a toast by Hyun Oh-seok, South Korea’s Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of Economic Affairs. This follows the celebration last year when it opened the new office at the Mirae Asset Center One, in the heart of the capital.
William Pesek, Bloomberg View’s Asia Pacific Columnist, moderated a panel discussion at the event that discussed risks and opportunities for Korea in the next 12 months. The panel, called, “As US Fed Zigs, Asia Zags?” featured: Mi-Young Jeong, Head of Currency Research, Samsung Futures; Dr. Jaewoo Lee, Chief Economist of Korea, Bank of America Merrill Lynch; Jin-Woo Lee, Head of Research, NH Investment & Futures Co. Ltd.; and Paul Mackel, Head of Asian Currency Research, HSBC.
