    Vice Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy Lee In-ho (seventh from left, front row) gave the congratulatory remarks at the Seoul International Forum on Trade Remedies 2018 in Seoul on July 3. 
    Saying that the free trade system has contributed to growth and made our lives considerably better, Vice Minister Lee called for fair and transparent remedies that abide by WTO rules and told the trade remedy authorities that they should reduce uncertainties in order to overcome protectionism and to promote free trade around the world. 
    The yearly forum, organized by the Ministry’s Korea Trade Commission, took place this year under the theme of “The Challenges and Tasks of Investigation Authorities for Free and Fair Trade.” It was attended by representatives from a wide range of trade authorities, including the WTO’s Senior Counsellor Jesse Kreier, the U.S. Commerce Department’s Deputy Assistant Secretary Gary Taverman, and the Chinese Commerce Ministry’s head of the Trade Remedy and Investigation Bureau Wang Hejun.
