People-to-people exchanges between our two countries have continued to steadily increase. Finnair’s launch of a direct flight between Incheon and Helsinki in 2008 has brought our peoples much closer. Indeed, every year more and more people of Finland are enjoying Korean culture in such forms as K-Pop, Korean food and Korean films. Likewise, Koreans take an increasing interest in the education, society, and innovation ecosystem of Finland. There is such tremendous scope for us to collaborate and forge even stronger partnerships. Furthermore, the launch of the direct flight between Busan and Helsinki in 2020 will generate another momentum for interaction between Korea and Finland.
Our embassy will exert every effort not only to develop the solid ties of cooperation and people-to-people exchanges between the Republic of Korea and the Republic of Finland but indeed to ensure the safety and promote the interests of Koreans in Finland.
Looking to you for your continued invaluable support, I thank you deeply.
