The state visit of Shavkat Mirziyoyev to the Republic of Korea at the invitation of President Moon Jae-in opened a new stage towards further development of cooperation of the two countries based on traditional friendship and mutual trust.
During the negotiations, there was an exchange of views on priority areas of further development of bilateral cooperation for the long term, as well as regional and international issues of mutual interest.
So, the complex of financing issues of large investment projects, further intensification of cooperation in the spheres of economy, energy, finance, investments, high technologies, increasing the trade turnover, expansion of humanitarian ties, strengthening cooperation between ministries and departments were discussed at the negotiations.
Within the framework of the visit, over 60 documents worth more than 10 billion dollars were signed in trade-economic, investment, financial, technical and other spheres. Of these, 4,5 billion dollars are direct investment.
