South Korea has opened its new cultural centre in Cairo, located in Doqqi. The center, the first of its kind in the Arab region and the Middle East, was inaugurated last week by South Korea’s Ambassador to Cairo Kim Young-so who said he had strong hopes that the establishment of the centre would work to boost ties with Egypt in various fields.
For his part, First Undersecretary of the Ministry of Higher Education and Chairman of the Cultural Affairs and Missions Sector Hilali Sherbini said that the centre’s opening was an important step to foster bilateral ties, and will be reciprocated with the opening of an Egyptian cultural centre in Seoul.
