Due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was held online.

In 2021, the twinning between localities, trade connection, science and technology cooperation, and travel between Vietnam and the Repubic of Korea (RoK) face many difficulties while the pandemic is still complicated.

However, that is the driving force that urges VKBIA to promote the effective connection of activities and programs to further promote Vietnam-RoK trade and relations.

Chungbuk Technopark is an innovation hub of the region. It focuses on industrial development of the whole Chungbuk province, supporting businesses and creating jobs, through collaboration between local industries - academia – research – local and national governments.

Chungbuk Technopark has been playing an important role in nurturing and training technology enterprises in Chungbuk province in particular and RoK in general.

The two sides have committed to implementing the following programs: promoting technology exchange and transfer, supporting experts, supporting vocational training and employment; jointly promoting cultural exchange, education, science and technology, economy and trade, local twinning, and promoting cooperation in all fields between Vietnam, RoK and other countries.

Chungbuk Technopark's Director of global cooperation and business development support Lee Hyeonse believes that the cooperation between Chungbuk Technopark and VKBIA will bring synergy and strength to promote training support activities, job generation, incubation and development of businesses, and technology transfer between Vietnam and RoK.

Mr. Tran Hai Linh, Member of the Vietnam Fatherland Front Central Committee, and Chairman of VKBIA, concluded after the signing ceremony that the two sides agreed to jointly promote information exchange activities, and to introduce technology transfer, training and exchange experts in the coming time.

The following goal is toward small and medium enterprises in Vietnam to access technology solutions and experiences in implementing research results into practice from Chungbuk Technopark. At the same time, VKBIA hopes to bring advantages and potential values to Vietnamese products when coordinating with RoK, including joint products, said Mr Linh./.
