Abstract

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Republic of Korea and the EU. Over this period of time, bilateral ties between Korea and the EU have progressively been consolidated. The EU is now Korea’s second largest trading partner and its largest investor. Cooperation between Korea and the EU is ever increasing over time. Korea and the EU also agreed to launch a Strategic Partnership on the occasion of the Korea-EU Summit held in Brussels on 6 October 2010, ensuring a high level of commitment from both sides. The Korea-EU Framework Agreement (FA) was signed in May 2010 and follow-up measures are underway for its entry into force, addressing a wide range of international concerns, such as weapons of mass destruction, human rights, climate change and development assistance. Furthermore, the Korea-EU Free Trade Agreement (FTA) entered into force on 1 July 2011. This briefing seminar was a follow-up to the EU-Korea Summit, held on 8 November in Brussels, and provided the opportunity to reflect on 50 years of bilateral relations and an outlook for the future.
