Park Joon-kwon, Commissioner for Ports at the MOF, said: “The signing of this MoU signifies that public-private partnerships in overseas port developments will be increasingly resilient.”

The ministry will be exploring and carrying out development for ports overseas, as well as providing the necessary port intelligence for operations.

South Korea has previously agreed to set up a US$10 billion support fund with Indian President Narendra Modi in a bid to develop ports.

As a nation, South Korea is more commonly known for its shipbuilding capabilities, where Hyundai Heavy Industries top the global shipbuilding rankings.
