2015/08/19

On August 19, 2015, Assistant Foreign Minister Liu Jianchao met with the delegation of youth elites of the Republic of Korea (ROK) led by President Hyun-seok Yu of the Korea Foundation. Both sides exchanged views on China-ROK relations and other topics. Youth elite representatives from political, economic, academic, cultural, public opinion and other circles of the two countries communicated in a friendly and warm atmosphere.

During his visit to the ROK in July, 2014, President Xi Jinping agreed with President Park Geun-hye of the ROK to launch programs of “Mutual Visits and Exchanges of Youth Elites” and “Youth Leaders Forum”. Such two programs, carried out by the All-China Youth Federation (ACYF) and the Korea Foundation, have been incorporated into the 2015 activity framework of the China-ROK Joint Committee on People-to-People and Cultural Exchanges. This time it is the delegation of 100 youth elites of the ROK that visits China. Soon afterwards the Chinese delegation of youth elites will visit the ROK and hold the first China-ROK Youth Leaders Forum.
