International Issues

Bilateral and regional cooperation

South Korea

Basis of EU-South Korea Cooperation

South Korea is a key, like-minded partner for the EU in an increasingly important part of the world. The EU-Korea relationship has evolved over the past few years, based on shared values, common issues of global concern and the increasing role of both partners at world stage. This is demonstrated by the signing of two agreements during 2010, creating a broad and comprehensive relationship: Framework Agreement (FA) and Free Trade Agreement (FTA). They will boost trade and investment relations, underpin political dialogue, step up coordination and dialogue on global issues and stimulate cooperation in sector such as environment and climate change.

EU-South Korea Environment Dialogue

Environment and climate change are on the list of sectoral topics for discussion both at the annual EU-Korea Summits and at the EC-Korea Joint Committee Meetings (JCM). The 7th Summit between the EU and Korea took place in Brussels on 8 November 2013. The report is available here.
