Mission UBA 2011: China and Korea

During October 2011 the Rector of the University of Buenos Aires, Ruben Hallu, with his Secretary of International Affairs, Marcelo Tobin, traveled to Korea and China. This trip was organized in the framework of the institutional decision to promote and strengthen the cooperation with the region. The visit sought to reinforce this commitment and to concrete plans in order to foster the collaboration and interchange.

The delegation was received in Seoul by mr. Choe Yangboo, former Korean ambassador to the Republic of Argentina, and one of the driving forces behind the creation of the Korea Argentina Center in UBA.

During the stay in Seoul, the delegation met the President of Seoul National University, Dr. Oh Yeon - Cheon, in a meeting which was also attended by Ambassador Choe and his former cultural attache in Argentina, Mr. Park Wansoo. Meetings were also conducted with authorities of the Korea Foundation, and an important reunion was held with the President of Hankuk University, Park Chul, and Prof. Won Ho Kim (Dean of the Graduate School of International Studies) among other university authorities. During the meeting, both presidents signed an agreement for cooperation and exchange and also set up some issues of mutual interest for joint work between the two institutions.
