During the forum, the ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Ukraine, Lee Yang-goo, suggested that Ukraine and Korea set up a partnership platform.

"At the government level, this could be a master plan for cooperation which would include an action plan and a roadmap. Second, we need an implementation mechanism. Third, we also need a platform for financial partnership," he said.

As far as the level of private business is concerned, these could be forums, a friendship association and an analytical centre, he added.

MP Serhiy Taruta said that Ukraine and the Republic of Korea should become strategic partners.
