MINSK, 10 April (BelTA) – Joint projects in science and technology dominate the cooperation agenda of the Republic of Belarus and the Republic of Korea, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Korea to Belarus Kim Yong Ho said during the 6th Belarusian-Korean forum “Science. Innovations. Industry” that is underway in Minsk, BelTA has learned.

The ambassador emphasized that bilateral cooperation is successful and dynamic. This forum is a testimony to that. A large Korean delegation arrived in Minsk to take part in the forum, which testifies to its significance and high profile. The Korean delegation includes 30 people representing the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT), the Korea-Russia Science and Technology Cooperation Centre, the National Research Foundation of Korea, universities and research centers.

Director General of MSIT International Cooperation Bureau Song Kyung Hee noted that Belarus and the Republic of Korea have much in common despite the distance between them. Having no significant natural resources, both countries invest a lot in human potential, innovation and technology. “As far as I know, Belarus has highly qualified workforce, advanced information and communication technology, well-developed fundamental science. This is the foundation to step up our cooperation,” she emphasized.
