Humala Meets With South Korean Officials, To Cooperate On Science And Technology

President Ollanta Humala on Thursday met with South Korea’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Kim Sung-hwan, who said the Asian country would support Peru in developing a science and technology center.

Sung-hwan said that science and technology support could be provided in the defense sector, including for aircraft as well as navy tankers, state news agency Andina reported.

“My government is open to transferring technology to the sectors that Peru needs,” Sung-hwan said.

South Korea’s Ambassador to Peru, Park Hee-Kwon, said his country has the technology that could boost Peru’s navy.

The visit to Lima of the South Korean official comes as Peru has been boosting ties with the Asian country. President Humala was in Seoul two weeks ago during a investment roadshow to Japan and South Korea.

Peru and South Korea have signed a free trade agreement, and earlier this month Humala meet with government and business leaders in South Korea as part of a two-country tour.
