Peru VP to Reinforce Bilateral Ties in Technology with South Korea

SEOUL – The second Vice-President of Peru arrived in South Korea on Tuesday for a four-day visit focused on strengthening bilateral cooperation in technological matters.

Mercedes Araoz is to deliver the inaugural keynote address at the Korea-Latin America Future Cooperation Forum organized by the South Korean government and the Korea International Trade Association.

“The visit of the second Vice-President is important because it comes at a very special moment as the New South Korean government of President Moon Jae-in has just been set up,” the Peruvian ambassador to South Korea, Jaime Pomareda, told EFE.

At the forum, representatives from the public and private sector are to exchange views on the challenges and opportunities that the fourth industrial revolution is expected to bring in South Korea and Latin American countries.

The fourth industrial revolution is, for many theorists, in its early days and is based on digital advances such as artificial intelligence, the so-called “internet of things” and cloud computing, which would allow new models of automation and production.

In the field of technological cooperation, Araoz is to meet with the CEO of the company that operates Seoul Metro, Kim Tae-ho, and visit the smart city project of Songo in Incheon.

Pomareda also stressed that Araoz’s visit followed that of the first Vice President of Peru, Martin Vizcarra, to South Korea in September 2016.

During Vizcarra’s visit, he received South Korea’s support for the implementation of intelligent systems in transport.

Pomareda explained that Araoz was also scheduled to meet with Interior Minister Kim Boo-Kyum to further strengthen cooperation in the field of digitizing public administration, following a memorandum of understanding signed by both countries last June.

The Seoul government is also to address the support for Peru’s candidature for access to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development.
