Arirang TV's current affairs program "UPFRONT" has focused on the significance of President Park's visit to France and the ways to expand the cooperation between the two countries.
President Park visited France for the first time in 16 years. The visit was more meaningful in that this year celebrates the 130th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between the two countries. This visit brought about much success in opening a new era of cooperation in creative economy and cultural enrichment for the two countries.
Prof. Kim Tae-hyun of Chung-Ang Univ., commented that the president's visit was meaningful in that it was the 3rd visit and also because it was a state visit. Prof. Park Tae-woo of the Institute of Sustainable Development at Korea University mentioned that the relationship between the two countries improved with President Hollande's visit last year and that President Park's visit also contributed much in enhancing the relationship between Korea and France.
In regards to the economic and diplomatic results of this visit, Prof. Park stated that if there has been more than 20 MOUs signed between the governments then it is quite an accomplishment and since 80% of the delegation was made up of representatives from SMEs(Small and medium-sized enterprises), this will be a big help to them.
In regards to the French people's interest in Korean culture, Prof. Park mentioned that the interest in Korea's pansori is growing in France and that more Korean literatures are being translated. Prof. Kim added that the volume of Korean dramas imported by France has grown 10 times in the past 2-3 years.
On the subject of cultural exchange between the two countries, Prof. Kim stated that more European exchange students are coming to Korea and he believes President Park's visit will provide a chance for the cultural exchange to expand.
You can check out the program in detail on June 9 (Thu.) broadcast.
