Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1892, Korea and Austria have maintained their long friendship to this day. 2020 is a very special year for Austrian Ambassador to Korea Michael SCHWARZINGER who has been continuing this historical relationship. This is because in June, he will be wrapping up his past 33 years as a diplomat in Korea. The Ambassador has had an eventful term since being posted to Korea in November 2017 with major historic and diplomatic events such as the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, inter-Korean summit, North Korea-US summit etc. occurring during his term. Now, the Ambassador is focusing on the Korean government’s response to COVID-19 and how to implement the measures in Austria. We will meet the Ambassador and his wife, Rosemaria SCHWARZINGER, who are spending meaningful time ahead of their retirement, to hear about their thoughts on the past and how they are looking ahead for the enhancement of bilateral relations.
