The Embassy of Ukraine in Korea hosted a gala reception on Nov.9 at Four Seasons Seoul Hotel to celebrate 27th anniversary of the country's Independence.
More than 200 plus prominent guests from the Korean government, business and sociopolitical sectors joined the event.

In his congratulatory speech, H.E. Amb. Olexander Horin noted that statehood is far older than 27 years and through the ages Ukraine  had to fight hard to preserve its identity and culture.  "21st century brought new challenges, as we are facing military aggression of the Russian Federation – a nuclear armed state, which trampled its partnership commitments and principles of international law.

   
 

But our country is emerging stronger from the conflict with new armed forces, economy boosted by modernization reforms and Association agreement with the European Union, and society aware of its goals and existential choice."
He went on to say that step by step, people of Ukraine are cutting the old ropes, which enveloped freedom-loving Ukrainian soul.
"This includes ongoing process of granting Autocephaly to Ukrainian Orthodox Church by Ecumenical
Patriarchate, which gives us hope for higher spiritual unity," Amb.Olexander Horin stressed.
But no man and no nation is an island. It would not be possible to effectively address our challenges
without support from friends and international community in general. We appreciate that Republic of Korea joined other nations in supporting the UN General Assembly Resolution called "Territorial integrity of Ukraine", which rebuked Russian annexation of Crimea.

   
 

At the same time, Ukraine is a country, which voluntarily dismantled world third biggest nuclear arsenal and made its own denuclearization. That’s why Ukraine is strong supporter of peaceful reconciliation and denuclearization of Korean peninsula. Our bilateral relations with the Republic of Korea are developing on a positive track.
Among other things, Ukraine was included into Northern Economic Cooperation strategy declared by the
new Korean Presidential Committee, he said.

   
 

In April 2018, the First Vice Prime Minister Stepan Kubiv visited Korea to boost bilateral trade, economic and investment cooperation.

   
 

In April 24, His Excellency Yun Kang-hyeon co-chaired the 4th meeting of the Intergovernmental  Ukrainian – Korean Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation in Seoul, which was quite visionary for our future economic relations.
Alongside the meeting the 6th Ukrainian – Korean Economic Forum was held jointly with KITA.

"A number of leading Korean corporations are proactively extending their presence in Ukraine.
There is good rationale behind this. Ukraine’s GDP is growing successfully. Our global economic rankings improved considerably, including Ease of Doing Business, Innovation Index and Logistics Performance," he said.

   
 

In 2017 Ukrainian IT sector grew by 20%, agricultural production – by 17%. But it’s not only “Grains and Brains”, as Energy, Manufacturing and Infrastructure sectors also look very attractive for investors.

   
 

To further enhance our ties with the Republic of Korea we strongly expect that Korean side will approve the abolishment of visa-regime for Ukrainian citizens. Removal of artificial barriers between our societies is a good step to develop further our bilateral cooperation, he said.

"I am also pleased to note active participation of Ukrainian artists and athletes in cultural and sporting events taking place in the Republic of Korea. This year’s Winter Games were the culmination  of huge preparatory work of the Korean government and demonstrated top level of technological  progress in the country. It is worth mentioning that Ukrainian Paralympic team has shown high result,  winning the 6th place," he stressed.

With all these positive developments in mind let`s join our hands in working together for more peaceful and prosperous future. I also would like to thank each and everyone who put their efforts and good will to make this event memorable, he concluded.
