The South Korean government will support efforts to promote job creation, vocational training, and investment opportunities, National Assembly of South Korea Speaker Park Byeong-Seug said.
He made these remarks when he met President Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the Presidential Secretariat yesterday (20).
The President said there is ample scope for investment opportunities in Sri Lanka due to its strategic location in the region, and requested Mr. Park Geung-seog to encourage leading Korean companies to explore investment opportunities.
Nearly 22,000 Sri Lankans are employed in South Korea, and they are happily contributing to the workforce. Mr. Geung-seog told the President that steps would be taken to fulfill the request to increase the quota provided for employment for Lankans in South Korea.
The South Korean Speaker also agreed to provide assistance to enhance vocational training opportunities in Sri Lanka and further stated that he would be willing to provide assistance to meet the present needs of the country.
