In preparations for post-pandemic recovery and sustainable economic growth, South Korea is pursuing stronger interrelations with Italy in biotechnology and eco-friendly energy segments, as reported in The Korea Herald 

According to the Ministry of Trade, Industry, and Energy, the two countries plan to organise their first round of strategic meetings for bilateral cooperation in industry and energy in Rome next week.  

Since President Moon Jae-in’s visit to Italy in October 2018, Italy and South Korea had agreed to form a strategic partnership, but follow-up meetings were delayed by the pandemic.  

During the meeting, the two nations are expected to share ideas on growing ties in the green and digital industries to support post-pandemic economic recovery.
