VGP – The Republic of Korea (RoK) plans to open a Consulate Office in the central city of Da Nang in the second half of 2019 to boost tourism and investment.

Local media of the RoK has quoted an official of the ministry as saying that as the number of RoK tourists to Da Nang has surged recently, the ministry has considered the launching of a consulate office in the city.

Currently, the ministry is discussing the issue with other agencies on budget and administrative matters. If all procedures related to budget, human resources, location, infrastructure and equipment are complete as schedule, the RoK Consulate General in Da Nang will be opened in the second half of 2019, said the official.

Located between the two famous destinations of the ancient imperial capital of Hue and the ancient port city of Hoi An, Da Nang, with a population of 1 million people, has been well-known for beautiful beaches and resorts. 
Korean tourists are the second largest segment of foreign tourist arrivals to Da Nang. More than 430,000 arrived last year, nearly 20% of total foreign travellers.

At the same time, Korean investors poured over 244 million into 83 projects, the fourth biggest foreign investment in Da Nang.

Now, the RoK is operating its embassy in Ha Noi and a Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City.
