Meeting at the Embassy

Delegation visits the ambassador of South Korea in Wassenaar 


On October 23d alderman Pieter Dijkman of Alkmaar with Fré Harmsen and Karin Ossebaar of the Pak Yon Foundation visited the Ambassador of South Korea, H.E. Mr. Yeondoo Jeong. The visit took place at the residence of the ambassador, where they were invited to discuss future activities. In 2021 it will be 60 years that there are diplomatic relations between South Korea and the Netherlands. Because of that there will be several festivities all over the country during the year.

 The ambassador would like that also Alkmaar and De Rijp will take part in one way or the other. This because of the importance of Jan Janszn. Weltevree. A whole list of possibilities has been reviewed. Among these were subjects in the field of the history of both places, agri-food, high tech and innovation, culture from both countries, such as music (classical and modern) and dance, education, tourism, art (textile old and new) and last but not least, the Alkmaar cheese market. If corona permits, these activities might take place at several moments during the year and at various places.

As soon as possible there will be further consultation on this subject, either in The Hague, De Rijp or Alkmaar.
