Guatemala, famous for its Antigua coffee, is a world-renowned coffee producer based on its diverse climate and topography. Guatemala also maintains the atmosphere of the ancient Maya Civilization as it is home to Tikal National Park, the largest urban archaeological site of the Maya and UNESCO World Heritage. There is a place where people can experience Mayan culture in Korea. It is the Latin American Cultural Center, located in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province. Guatemala's Ambassador to Korea Marco Tulio Chcas Sosa's eyes shine bright as he introduces Mayan artifacts at the center. Since being posted to Korea in November last year, Ambassador Chicas Sosa has been working hard to enhance bilateral cooperation in more areas than before. He has been pursuing active economic exchange while expanding the scope of exchange to agriculture and climate change. Guatemala and Korea have maintained friendly relations since first establishing ties in 1962. We will hear from Ambassador Chicas Sosa about his plans as the two countries continue the legacy of friendship, while moving forward to a new era of cooperation.
