The 6th China-ROK Public Diplomacy Forum, under the theme of “Building Full Trust and Supporting the New Decade of China-ROK Relations,” took place in Yancheng City, Jiangsu Province on December 4 and 5.

It was jointly held by the Foreign Ministry of China and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea (ROK), and organized by China Public Diplomacy Association and the Korea Foundation. Participants to the forum conducted in-depth exchanges and discussions on how to plan and develop strategic partnership between the two countries in the next 10 years.

Economic and trade cooperation between the two countries has deepened, cultural exchanges have become more closer, and bilateral relations have achieved leapfrog development and yielded fruitful results since the establishment of diplomatic relations 26 years ago, especially after two countries entered a strategic cooperative partnership ten years ago. A role model of China-ROK industrial cooperation, Yancheng is home to a cluster of ROK-funded enterprises and the return on investment here is also of the best.

Yueda Automobile Group and Hyundai Motor Co jointly set up the Yueda Kia Motors Co Ltd in Yancheng, which has led to a complete automobile industry chain forming in the city and also export of complete vehicles. At present, more than 10,000 South Koreans live in Yancheng, the biggest feature of the city’s opening up.
