SEOUL, Feb. 10 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's stock exchange made a pitch Friday for its tech-heavy market in a meeting with foreign investors.

The Korea Exchange (KRX) discussed ways to promote the secondary KOSDAQ with the representatives from around 10 foreign firms including JP Morgan and BNP Paribas.

The luncheon meeting was hosted by Kim Jae-joon, chief executive officer of the KOSDAQ market.

The participants "discussed the need for the KOSDAQ's marketing to benchmark the U.S. NASDAQ, which has taken root as a high-tech innovation market," the KRX said.

Those foreign investors asked the KRX to develop various types of investment vehicles including futures and derivatives, it added.
