The Ambassador of the Republic of Korea, Hee-seog Kwon, who has been in Italy for a few months, is on an official visit to Palermo, together with the First Secretary of the Embassy. The Korean diplomat, accompanied by the Honorary Consul of the Republic of Korea in Sicily Antonio Di Fresco, met with the Prefect, the Vice-President of the Sicilian Region, the Rector Delegate of the University of Palermo to Internationalization in the care of relations with political institutions and international diplomats, the President of the Chamber of Commerce of Palermo and Enna, the vice-president of the Sicindustria, the delegate of the industrialists to the Internationalization and the Managing Director of Gesap.
During the visit to Palermo, today, in the presence of the councilor Giuseppe Mattina, there was the ceremony of naming a street in Palermo to the Asian country: it is the “Largo Repubblica di Corea” located at the end of via Lussemburgo.
“It is a sign – explains the consul Antonio Di Fresco – that the Municipal administration wanted to give to the Republic of Korea following the ever increasing relations, which see tourist flows in continuous increase”.
During the day, at the Teatro Massimo the ambassador will also meet the Superintendent, with whom the foundations of future relations will be laid in the context of a broader cultural collaboration. The diplomat will therefore visit the Royal Palace with the Palatine Chapel on Saturday 3 August and will visit Monreale, where he will be welcomed by the deputy mayor of the Norman town and will visit the Duomo and the Cloister.
