“As a Korean American - and as the youngest Asian American CEO & Cofounder on the New York Stock Exchange — it is a great honor to work with the Korean National Assembly to provide this esteemed institution, its staff, and its members with policy monitoring and issue tracking services that will enhance its effectiveness, knowledge, and ability to govern in a policymaking environment which is increasingly complex, fast-moving, and impactful,” said FiscalNote’s Hwang. “This landmark, first-of-its-kind partnership in Korea demonstrates how FiscalNote serves as an essential partner to the world’s most important decision-makers, especially those in the public sector, whose institutions and democratic assemblies and parliaments rely on our AI-enabled products and services to deliver critical policy and regulatory information, tracking, updates, and news through our award-winning SaaS platforms.”
