First Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia and Minister of Education, Science and Technological Development Branko Ružić spoke with HE Lee Jung, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Serbia, expressing confidence that good cooperation between the two countries will continue, especially in education.

Ružić said that the two countries have long had friendly relations and successful cooperation in the field of education, and that there is undoubtedly room for its improvement, primarily in higher education and science.

The First Deputy Prime Minister observed that there are memoranda of understanding signed between the ministries of the two countries and between the institutes for the improvement of education.

“Serbian is taught at Hankuk University in Seoul, and we have a Korean language lecturer at the Faculty of Philology in Belgrade. The Republic of Korea also provides full or partial scholarships for Serbian students to study at Korean universities, for undergraduate, master’s or doctoral studies”, said Ružić.

According to Ružić, a high-tech ICT classroom was opened in January this year at the Philological Gymnasium, the result of many years of cooperation between the two ministries on the Innovative ICT Experimental Classroom project, and modern IT equipment was also provided to the primary school Despot Stefan Lazarević.

Ružić expressed hope that the existing cooperation will be further deepened and continued, but that it will also be expanded into science and technological development.

Ambassador Lee Jung said that the department of education is among the priorities for strengthening relations between the two countries, with a special focus on the digitalization of classrooms and classes. He expressed gratitude for the arrival of students from Serbia to study in Korea.

“These are brilliant, intelligent and capable people that we are very proud of. I am pleased to exchange students because when they return to their countries, they will be richer for new knowledge and skills”, said Lee.
