It is now necessary to open a direct flight to Seoul Bishkek. On 16 June, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Kirgizia, Jong Beong-Hu, briefed the delegation of textiles in the Kyrgyz capital.
♪ The office of CAICA, the international cooperation agencies of the Republic of Korea in Bishkek, opened last year. The organization deals with various projects, including the transfer of labour from Kirgizia to Korea, by the Ambassador of Korea. RCs also visit about 10 volunteer groups annually, as well as delegations from the South Korean Minds. Tourism is also an important area in which Korea is interested in development. This requires the establishment of a direct Séul-Bishkek flight that will facilitate the movement of tourists and businessmen from our countries. I hope this flight will be here soon.
According to the Chairman of the Association of South Koreans in the CD, Lee Hee Man, cooperation between Korea and Kirgizia is being strengthened. One of the main obstacles to further development of this process is the absence of a direct flight between Bishkek and Seoul.
♪ With the support of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in the CD and other entities interested in developing relations between Kyrgyzstan and Korea, the issue of tourism development must be addressed. This is also facilitated by the warm relationship between the two Governments, as well as the fact that thousands of Kyrgyz are working in Korea, noted by the head of the Association.
We will recall that in November 2013, President Kirgizia Almazbek Atambaev visited Seoul on an official visit. At the same time, 120 Korean and Kyrgyz entrepreneurs participated in a joint business forum, which resulted in the signing of a mutual cooperation and grant agreement between the two Governments. During the Atambaev Forum, South Korean entrepreneurs were identified as priority areas for the Kyrgyz economy: hydropower, mining, transport and tourism.
