A delegation of the South Korean province of Chungcheongnam-do on Monday visited the Zagreb County to discuss cooperation in areas of common interest, and the two sides signed an agreement on cooperation.
Zagreb County head Stjepan Kozic said that the meeting was organised to explore possibilities for joint projects in the economic sector, including tourism.
The two regions have already been cooperating, Kozic said and in that context noted that the number of overnight stays and arrivals of South Korean tourists in Zagreb County in 2018 was 113% higher than in 2017.
South Koreans recognise Zagreb County as a tourist destination, Kozic said, adding that he hoped the number of visits would continue to grow.
He recalled that some ten days ago an EUR 80 million agreement was signed between the South Korean car maker Hyundai and Croatia’s Rimac Automobili.
The president of the assembly of Chungcheongnam-do province, Yoo Byung Kook, said that South Koreans loved Croatia and were interested in cooperation in culture, economy, tourism, medicine and other areas.
During their stay in Croatia, the South Korean delegation will also visit a special hospital for rehabilitation in Ivanic Grad.
