Hanoi (VNA) – A workshop was held on March 23 in Hanoi to promote bilateral cooperation and exchanges of health care products and technologies between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea (RoK).

The event was jointly organised by the Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park Management Board under the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Science and Technology Representative Office in Seoul.

Addressing the event, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Tran Quoc Khanh said the workshop presents opportunities to forge connection and technology transfer between the two nations’ businesses.

It also helps promote the domestic pharmaceutical and health care markets, as well as research and development work in the sector.

He urged Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park and the RoK’s Gyeongbuk Hi-tech Park to introduce their incentives for investors in the sci-tech sector.

Jang Hyo-jun from the Gyongbuk Hi-tech Park introduced to participants the park’s potential and incentives for investors.

He also highlighted several sectors that draw interest from the participating RoK enterprises, including bio-medicine, cosmetics, dentistry and rehabilitation.

Nguyen Trung Quynh from the Hoa Lac Hi-tech Park Management Board said the park aims to lure more sci-tech enterprises from the RoK, as the country is one of the biggest investors in Vietnam.

During the occasion, Vietnam’s Thang Long Medical Equipment JSC and Korea’s Wonbigen Company signed a memorandum of understanding on fostering bilateral cooperation and mutual support.-VNA
