Korean President Moon Jae-in has been on a 9-day tour of Europe from October 13 to discuss bilateral cooperation and peace on the Korean peninsula. The last leg of his trip will be Denmark, a world leading country in renewable energy and green growth, where he will speak on Korea's efforts to promote eco-friendly growth at the 1st P4G Copenhagen Summit.
Denmark is consistently ranked as one of the happiest countries in the world with an average work-life balance satisfaction score of 9 out of 10, according to the 2017 OECD Report. Korea is also trying to promote a greater work-life balance, recently lowering the maximum hours people can work per week from 68 to 52 hours.
Therefore, on “The Diplomat," we are going to meet Danish Ambassador to Korea Thomas Lehmann to learn more out about the key aspects of the country's healthy work-life balance, the status of our cooperation, and the preparations for the 60th anniversary of our diplomatic ties in 2019.
