Korea became the first Northeast Asian country to host the UNWTO Global Summit on Urban Tourism. Under the theme of "A 2030 Vision for Urban Tourism," over 500 representatives exchanged expertise and experience to enhance urban tourism during this year's summit in Seoul. Among them was Namsrai Tserenbat, Minister of Environment and Tourism of Mongolia. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1990, Korea and Mongolia have broadened cooperation in various areas. Also, both Korean tourism to Mongolia and Mongolian tourism to Korea have increased each year.
This week on "The Diplomat," we invite Mr. Namsrai Tserenbat to talk about Korea and Mongolia's cooperation in the tourism and environment sectors as well as their solid ties dating back to the mid-13th century.
