He expects the RoK to share experiences with the city in mobilising international resources to support adaptation and prevention of disasters caused by climate change.

“The city is also willing to build a long-term cooperation with the RoK in green economy development,” he said.

The city is preparing for its strategy on circular economy, and green and sustainable growth.

It expects to learn experiences from the RoK in building policies, standards and roadmaps to achieve sustainable development goals, he said.

With the potential and its pioneering role, the RoK would lead major cities in Asia to foster sustainable economic development, build green economies, and protect the environment, he added.

Kum Hang-seung said the two countries have organised annual ministerial meetings to share relevant policies on the environment and green growth.

The RoK chose  二0 二 三 as the year of green technology growth.

It will share technologies in green development through international cooperation, contributing to green growth and sustainable development identified as one of the focuses of many countries around the world, he said.
