Korean Ambassador Visits KU

Vows partnerships in ‘areas of mutual interest’

Srinagar- The Korean Am­bassador to India Jae-bok Chang Tuesday visited the University of Kashmir with top officials of the Ko­rean Embassy in an effort to develop future coopera­tion and partnership in the ‘mutual areas’ of academ­ics, research and culture.

Vice-Chancellor Prof Nilofer Khan warmly re­ceived the delegation at the Vice-Chancellor’s Sec­retariat where she enlight­ened the visiting delegates about the academic and research progression of the University over the years, including its current sta­tus of being one of the fore­most academic institutions in the country assessed as ‘A+’ by the National As­sessment and Accredita­tion Council.

According to a state­ment, the visiting delegation thereafter interacted with top academic administra­tors and officers of the Uni­versity at a session chaired by the Vice-Chancellor.

Speaking on the occa­sion, Jae-bok Chang said the delegation aims to develop cooperation and future part­nerships in the domains of mutual interest related to academics, research and culture, among others.

“We want an increased people-to-people contact be­tween India and South Ko­rea. Under our global edu­cation programme, we have taken 24 Indian students in 2021 and this figure is expected to rise in the cur­rent year,” the Ambassa­dor said, assuring that the Korean Embassy will make “more efforts” to develop more partnerships.

He said this visit is the “beginning of our relation­ship with the University of Kashmir and we look for­ward to working closely with you to develop future coop­eration.” At the meeting, top University officers includ­ing Dean Academics, Dean Colleges, Dean Research, Registrar, Controller of Ex­aminations, Director Admis­sions, Director DIQA, Dean Students Welfare and Chief Proctor put forth their valu­able suggestions about areas which could be explored to develop such tie-ups.

Terming the Korean delegation’s visit as “very important”, the Vice-Chancellor hoped that such interactions will create opportunities for collaborative research, cultural exchange pro­grammes and scholarships avenues for our students and research scholars.
