South Korean Ambassador to Bangladesh Lee Yun Young called on Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at her office on Sunday.
They discussed issues related to bilateral interests, Hasina’s Press Secretary Abul Kalam Azad told reporters after the meeting.
He said the Prime Minister maintained that the relations between Bangladesh and South Korea have flourished over the years, especially in trade and investment, energy and power, infrastructure development, education and culture.
She recalled her successful visit to South Korea in May 2010 when she met former President Lee Myung-Bak.
Hasina also highlighted the success of her government in the education sector, especially the rise in enrolment at the primary level.
The Prime Minister mentioned that Bangladesh benefited from training and educational programmes under the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA).
She hoped that more fellowships and scholarships would be provided by the Korean government and non-government organisations.
Hasina also congratulated the new President of South Korea, Park Geun-hye, through the South Korean envoy, on her assumption of office as the first female president in the history of Korea.
She expressed the hope that the ties between the two countries would reach new heights.
