Director QIAO also introduced the TCS and its main activities on supporting the trilateral consultative mechanisms and on exploring cooperative projects in various fields and so on.
In Q&A session, Chuncheongnam-do Officials asked many questions about TCS’s role in the trilateral local cooperation mechanisms and expressed their expectation on TCS’s support for deepening cooperation with their counterparts of China and Japan. Director QIAO emphasized that the TCS is willing to provide support to local governments for further promoting the trilateral cooperation.
Director-General of the Future Growth Headquarters of Chungcheongnam-do, Mr. LEE Gun-ho expected that the TCS could play a bridging role in developing the local government cooperation in the Yellow Sea Rim region.
The Chungcheongnam-do Local Government Officials’ Workshop invited approximately 50 local government officials to share the current progress of regional cooperation in the Yellow Sea Rim region and to discuss the future plan on a yellow sea rim initiative led by Chuncheongnam-do.
