The event was attended by the Korea Petroleum Quality and Distribution Authority (K-Petro), the Directorate for Standards, Metrology and Quality of Vietnam (STAMEQ), Quality Assurance and Testing Center (QUATEST)  and the Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex).

Since signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on technology cooperation in 2006, K-Petro and STAMEQ have actively coordinated to jointly carry out activities. Due to the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic, this year’s event was held in an online and in-person form, in full compliance with the health guidelines of Vietnamese authorities.

At the event, the representative of K-Petro presented the situation of the petroleum industry in the RoK and the reporting system on the supply and demand of petroleum products in the country, while the representative of STAMEQ gave a presentation on the current situation of Vietnam’s petroleum industry and introduced petroleum product testing and analysis technology.

President of KOTRA Southeast Asia and Oceania Mr. Lee Jong Seob, expressed his hope that the event would help the RoK and Vietnam understand each other’s current issues, and explore more new areas of cooperation.

According to Mr. Lee Jong Seob, KOTRA’s global CSR projects need more attention to create opportunities and stepping stones to foreign markets through technology grants./.
