Quotes Inspiring Cooperation

KAIST ICC Vice President Min Ho Kang, Ambassador Edmundo Fujita, Ambassador Hadil Vianna and Professor Jose Monserrat.

Brazil is pursuing lasting and productive relationships in Asia in the area of Science, Technology and Innovation, and Korea is a priority in this agenda. Cooperation agreements such as the one that enabled the opening of a Virtual Laboratory of Embrapa (Labex) in Korea are important drivers towards a long-term strategy for Brazil´s scientific and technological cooperation in Asia.  Also, the development of additional joint programs and cooperative activities will allow the expansion of mutual knowledge between organizations in both countries, which is essential in building trust and more productive relations in the future.
