Hosting a reception for the RoK’s delegation, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee and Chairman of the provincial People’s Council Pham Van Ranh asked for Chungcheongnam-do’s support in Korean language training for local officials, firefighting and rescue vehicles, development of public administration and e-government, and high-quality human resources training.

Ranh also introduced the province’s potential in agriculture, industry, trade, and services to his guest, saying that the province expects to welcome RoK investment in these fields.

Yoo Byung Kook, Chairman of the RoK province’s council, said that he respected the sound relations between the two localities.

He expressed his hope that following his visit to Long An province, businesses of both sides will have more chances to cooperate in trade and investment.

Chungcheongnam-do, located in the west of the RoK, holds strengths in science and technology, and has successfully applied advanced technologies in agriculture, automobile production and assembly, and manufacturing of supporting products. It is also one of the country’s pioneers in paying due attention to e-government development and using high technology in healthcare and education.
