The Zhejiang government delegation headed by Governor Yuan Jiajun arrived in Seoul on the evening of August 23rd after ending the visit to Singapore and began a friendly visit to South Korea.


On the 24th, Yuan Jiajun met with the Deputy Foreign Minister of the Republic of Korea, Zhao Xian, and the two sides had a cordial and friendly conversation. Yuan Jiajun said that that day was the 26th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between China and South Korea, so this meeting in Seoul was particularly commemorative. Zhejiang and South Korea have long had relations. The Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea, which was set up at No. 55, Changsheng Road, on the shore of West Lake in Hangzhou in the early 1930s, has become a historical witness of the friendly exchanges and mutual assistance between China and South Korea. Since the 1960s, South Korea has created a world-famous “Hanjiang Miracle”, which has provided valuable experience in promoting high-end development in the industrial transformation and upgrading and improving independent innovation capabilities. It is worth learning by Zhejiang. At present, Zhejiang is studying and implementing Xi Jinping’s socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, vigorously implementing the ten major action plans for enriching the people and empowering the province, and making comprehensive efforts to ensure high-quality development, so as to speed up the construction of “two high-levels”. Yuan Jiajun expressed his hope that this visit would be an opportunity to further close contacts, expand exchanges, build a number of influential cooperation platforms, and promote pragmatic cooperation in the fields of science and technology, industry, trade, and culture, in order to achieve complementary advantages, mutual benefit, and common development and to better benefit the people of the two places. Zhao Xian expressed his admiration for the achievements of Zhejiang in recent years and hoped to carry out exchanges and cooperation with Zhejiang in wider fields at a higher level to jointly create a better future.
