Vice Minister for Trade and Energy Park Young June recently traveled to Warsaw to discuss a potential nuclear partnership with Polish Commissioner for Nuclear Energy Hanna Trojanowska. The Korean delegation also included representatives of Korean energy businesses.
Poland is looking to nuclear energy as a practical solution to diversify its energy sources and address climate change. Vice Minister Park noted that, in the face of higher oil prices and worsening environmental challenges, having a partner with vast expertise and knowledge of the nuclear industry would be a wonderful asset.
On the same day, a business forum focused on possible joint projects involving renewable energy and the establishment of energy infrastructure in Poland. As a result of the free trade agreement that Korea and the European Union signed in October, Vice Minister Park emphasized that the two countries would enjoy many exciting opportunities to strengthen the bilateral relationship.
As part of his weeklong trip to Eastern Europe, the Vice Minister also visited Romania and Bulgaria to forge stronger industrial and energy ties.
