Thomson Reuters has entered into an agreement with MOLEG the Ministry of Government Legislation in Korea, marking the start of a new era for the South Korean government and an important stepping stone to encouraging new business and opening up Korean legal information to the world.

Thomson Reuters, Legal and The Korean Ministry of Government Legislation will work closely to develop and publish an English statute book on green growth and foreign investment, sharing vital policies with the International community.

It is expected that this agreement will allow us to provide vital information on Korean policies and systems that are so urgently needed by foreign investment companies and businesses in Korea.”
