The parties also agreed to expand the cooperation in the implementation of intelligent transport systems and the implementation of infrastructure projects on the terms of public-private partnership.
“We have a vast experience in the implementation of information technology in transport, including the implementation of high-speed Internet, in particular in trains and buses,” Cho Chong Xi said.
In summary, the parties positively noted the results achieved during the visit of the Ukrainian delegation to Korea and expressed hope for the continuation of fruitful cooperation.
