POSCO has hired the U.S.' former North Korea point man Stephen Biegun as an adviser.
The steelmaker turned to the former deputy secretary of state for guidance on navigating potential international trade disputes.
"POSCO's U.S. subsidiary appointed Biegun as an adviser this month," an industry insider said Tuesday. "He knows a lot about Korea and has a lot of information on U.S.-China relations and Europe and is expected to offer a lot of advice on global trade disputes and on POSCO's global business expansion."
Early this month, Biegun attended a virtual forum hosted by the steelmaker where he delivered a speech on the Biden administration's foreign policy and the new international order.
