KF Hosted Visit By Central Asian Next-Generation Leaders in the Standardization Sector

From August 4 through 10, 2019, the Korea Foundation hosted a visit by 5 next-generation leaders in the field of standardization from Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The five Central Asian countries are members of the Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum, a multilateral consultative body established in 2007 to discuss future-oriented, win-win cooperation between Korea and Central Asia.

The Central Asian delegation to Korea visited the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Korean Agency for Technology and Standards, the Korean Standards Association, the Korea Testing Certification and the Korea Accreditation Board, and had a tour of the Korea Conformity Laboratories.

On August 9, they attended the Next-Generation Leaders Dialogue, jointly organized by the Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum Secretariat and Chung-Ang University, to share information on the current status of standardization in each country and present cases of successful cooperation, thereby exploring potential future collaborations among the six countries.

In order to help foster a network, promote mutual understanding, and strengthen cooperation between Korea and Central Asia, the Korea Foundation hosts annual visits to Korea by Central Asian leaders from various sectors and facilitates exchanges with their Korean counterparts. For this year’s visit, the KF selected next-generation leaders from the standardization sector, an area on the agenda of the upcoming 12th Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum.

The recent visit of these Central Asian leaders offered an opportunity for constructive and practical network-building and exchanges between government organizations and experts from Central Asia and Korea.
