US SLATES EXPORT CONTROL SEMINAR

US SLATES EXPORT CONTROL SEMINAR

U.S. officials will conduct an export control seminar in Seoul later this month to cope with South Korea's rapidly increasing trade with the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

American diplomat Camille Sailer told reporters Friday South Korea was obliged to protect sensitive U.S. high technology because it signed an agreement with the Coordinating Committee for Multilateral Export Controls last year. Cocom is the Paris-based group that watches over exports of Western strategic goods to East bloc countries.Three specialists from the Bureau of Export Administration, part of the Commerce Department, will conduct the seminar March 27.
