기사요약: 한국 음식에 대한 수요가 증가함에 따라 떡과 떡복이 수출도 상승세를 타고 있습니다. 한국농수산유통식품공사는 수출 초창기 교민 중심으로 판매되던 떡과 떡볶이가 글로벌 시장에서 현지화에 성공하고 있는 것으로 풀이했습니다.

[3]Tteok is rice cake that can be eaten as a snack or used as an ingredient in food, while topokki is one of the most popular street snacks in South Korea, where tube-shaped tteok is broiled in hot pepper paste and served with eggs, toppings, noodles and fish cake.

[5]The aT Center said that while overseas demand was initially centered on Korean nationals living abroad, there has been a steady rise in demand from foreign consumers. It said ordinary Americans and Europeans were attracted by the perceived health benefits of eating gluten-free rice-based food, while in places like Japan, China and Southeast Asia, the Korean Wave, or the popularity of Korean pop culture abroad, is fueling consumption.

[2]“The report (released by the UN) warns us that we must decrease global greenhouse gas emissions 45 percent below 2010 levels by 2030, in order to avoid a catastrophe. I sincerely believe without any shadow of doubt that hydrogen has a place as a central pillar to the clean energy transition,” Chung said at the opening speech of a discussion arranged by Hyundai at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum last week.

*viable: 실행 가능한

[4]The discussion dealt with creating an emissions-free society and sustainable development, led by President of the Royal Economic Society Nicholas Stern, and joined by Kim Sae-hoon, vice president of Hyundai Motor’s fuel cell group, CEO of Macquarie Group Asia Ben Way, and founder and managing partner of FutureMap Parag Khanna as panelists.
