Among the keynote speakers were Dr. Ognian Shentov, Chairman of the Center for the Study of Democracy, H.E. Jeong Jinkyu, ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Bulgaria, Ms Temenuzhka Petkova, Minister of Energy and Mr Lyu Hyang-Reol, CEO of Korea South-East Power Co.
The Bulgarian and Korean participants agreed that there is a need of further bilateral cooperation in the energy sector and a potential for expansion. This collaboration could be especially fruitful in the area of renewable energy sources (RES) as both countries are striving to increase their energy independency. The event brought together representatives of the Bulgarian and Korean governments, executive agencies, business, NGOs, energy experts, academics, journalists and interested citizens.
