Denmark intends on strengthening its relationship with South Korea, and therefore Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary will undertake a trip to the Asian country in May.
Frederik and Mary will be in South Korea during the period of May 12-15, and will be accompanied by a business delegation, with a focus on commercial and cultural activities designed to strengthen bilateral relations between Denmark and South Korea, announced today in a press release from the Royal Family.
"The Crown Princely Couple begins their visit by participating in the official opening of the world exhibition EXPO 2012 in the South Korean port city of Yeosu, in which Denmark is represented in the exhibition in the Danish pavilion," writes the Royal Court.
"The visit will also focus on green growth, among other things, and follow the green growth alliance that was established under President Lee's state visit to Denmark in May 2011."
The cultural part of the visit will focus on Danish design and dance, which are two areas where Denmark and South Korea have begun working together.
