“Yucatan is betting on innovation, research and science as factors to increase its economic competitiveness, elements that make it the ideal place for foreign investment“, stated Governor Rolando Zapata Bello before the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea in Mexico, Chun Bee-Ho.
In response, the Korean diplomat said the government of his country will invest more than three million pesos in the construction of the “Korea-Mexico Friendship Hospital” (Hospital de la Amistad).
Governor and Ambassador met for the commemoration of the 110th anniversary of Korean immigration to Yucatan, and agreed to strengthen the partnerships between the two regions.
It was also stated in a press release, that Yucatecan students from the Technological Institute of Merida will receive computer training and special courses to learn Korean. In response, Ambassador Bee-ho underlined the importance of starting a commercial and cultural exchange, and highlighted that efforts have to be made to start exporting agricultural products to the entity as soon as possible.
110 years ago a few Korean immigrants arrived to the Yucatán to work in the henequen haciendas, where they performed hard agricultural work. Like the Maya peasants, they practically worked as slaves for wealthy landowners; and now, one century later, the Koreans are strategic allies for the State of Yucatan.
