Korean Embassy hosted its National Day Reception at the White Palace

Korean Embassy hosted its National Day Reception on 6th October at the White Palace, commemorating the founding of the first Korean nation

More than 300 guests attended – representatives of the government (including Andjelka Atanasković, Novica Tončev, Mihailo Jovanović), diplomatic corps, public life and the Korean community in Serbia. Požarevac-based choir “Barili” performed national anthems and traditional songs of both countries.

In his remarks, H.E. Ambassador Jaewoong Lee spoke about the spirit of universal humanitarianism, which can be a stepping stone for a bilateral relationship between Korea and Serbia, as they share similar historical backgrounds and personal characteristics. He said he expected more high-level visits from both governments and an increase in the volume of tourists. In the economy, he recalled that five Korean companies created almost 10,000 jobs in Serbia and more and more new investors expressed their interest in Serbia. At last, in Serbian, he asked for Serbia’s support for Korea’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo in Busan. A small exhibition of the culture and history of Korea was also organized, and a promotional film about Busan was screened during the reception.
