2023 marks 15 years since the establishment of the Strategic Partnership between South Korea and Romania. On this special occasion, the Ambassador of South Korea to Bucharest, HE Rim Kap-Soo was invited to Radio Romania, where he was also interviewed by Eugen Cojocariu. Ambassador Kap-Soo spoke of the excellent relations between Romania and South Korea, particularly in the economic field, where two-way trade stands at 1.3 bln EUR. Last week, Seoul donated 81 pieces of lab equipment to Romania worth 3.67 mln EUR, which will be used by the National Institute for Public Health. The South-Korean Ambassador said this is a gesture of goodwill in light of the excellent cooperation between the two countries in the COVID pandemic, when Bucharest donated 1.5 mln shots of anti-COVID vaccine to Seoul.
