문 대통령, 오늘 미얀마 방문…아웅산 수찌 국가고문과 정상회담
South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be in Myanmar today – the second leg of this three-nation ASEAN tour. Like in Bangkok, he’s expected to focus on ways to help Korean firms make in roads to the local market.
Park Hee-jun reports. President Moon Jae-in begins the second leg of his three-nation ASEAN tour,… in Myanmar.
“”The state visit to Myanmar between September 3rd and 5th is the first in seven years by a president since the last visit in 2012. We plan to institutionalize the basis for economic cooperation with Myanmar, which has great potential for growth, and discuss ways to achieve joint sustainable growth.”
President Moon is scheduled to visit two cities in Myanmar.
The first stop,… is the capital city of Nay Pyi Taw.
On Tuesday, Moon will sit down with State Councellor Aung San Suu Kyi to discuss ways both
countries can prosper together, cooperation between South Korea and ASEAN, as well as issues surrounding the Korean Peninsula.
And with President Win Myint,… President Moon will work to strengthen bilateral efforts to help push forward Korea’s ‘New Southern Policy.’
With Myanmar being another key part of Korea’s ‘New Southern Policy’, President Moon will be seeking ways to expand economic ties and allow more South Korean companies to enter the local market.
And on Wednesday, the president visits his next stop, Yangon.
There, the president will deliver a speech at a business forum, held along with a groundbreaking ceremony for an industrial complex created by the two governments.
Korea gets to help build infrastructure for Myanmar,… in return for easier access to the local market.
“President Moon leaves Thailand with the country’s full support for Korea’s ‘New Southern Policy’. He’ll be looking for more of the same from Myanmar,… another important nation in the Moon administration’s goals for the region.
