We meet Ambassador of Sweden to S. Korea, Jakob Hallgren, on this week’s "The Diplomat".
S. Korea and Sweden celebrated the 60th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations this year, which means Ambassador Hallgren, who was in the 2nd year of his term, had a lot on his plate.
To celebrate the occasion, the film festival that the Swedish Embassy holds every year prepared a documentary on the Korean War and other latest releases, while expanding screens to five cities around the nation.
The Embassy also held "Sweden Talk" which deals with the two countries' common interests each month, and various exhibitions and forums to spread Swedish culture in Korea.
Ambassador Hallgren has spearheaded cultural exchange so that the people of both nations can understand each other better. We’ll discuss Ambassador Hallgren’s designs for the future 60 years of bilateral relations on this week’s episode.
