Welkom bij de ambassade van Republiek Korea.
Welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Korea to the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
This website is designed to provide up to date information about various aspects of the Republic of Korea and its bilateral relations with the Netherlands.
Since the Republic of Korea and the Kingdom of the Netherlands formed diplomatic ties in 1961, the economic, political and cultural ties between the two countries have developed steadily in a mutually beneficial way.
The year of 2014 had been a particularly meaningful year in our bilateral relations. Former President Park Geun-hye paid a official visit to The Hague when she attended the Nuclear Security Summit in March, and the Korean people had the pleasure of welcoming Their Majesties the King Willem-Alexander and the Queen Maxima as their state guests in November. In September 2016 the relations between two countries have been further flourishing through the state visit of Prime Minister Rutte to Korea. On the occasion of his visit to Korea, Korea and the Netherlands agreed to upgrade bilateral relations with a “Comprehensive Future-oriented Partnership”. In particular, the two leaders reaffirmed their willingness to broaden and enhance their partnership by strengthening political and strategic cooperation, enhancing economic cooperation, deepening mutual understanding, and advancing global cooperation.
Based upon the fresh momentum fostered by such exchange of visits at the highest level, the Embassy will strive to support and organize a variety of activities that will further strengthen the friendly relationship between our two countries.
I hope that this website will be of use to you and I appreciate your valuable input that will help us to further improve this website.
Ambassador Lee Yun Young
