Nine youth representing the country in the Brunei Darussalam-Republic of Korea Youth Exchange Programme recently left for the 10-day programme, which will see them visiting youth centres and industries in the republic.

Acting Deputy Director of Youth and Sports Hajah Noor Maslina binti Haji Sulaiman saw the students off at the Brunei International Airport.

The delegation will attend an orientation session, visit the Korean Telecommunication Square (Experience 5G), Samsung D’light, ASEAN-Korea Centre, the National Museum and make a courtesy call on the Minister for Gender Equality and Family in Seoul.

The youth exchange programme between Brunei Darussalam and the Republic of Korea signed under the Memorandum of Understanding in 2009, aimed at strengthening cooperation between the two countries. The programme also hopes to enhance understanding and trust of both countries through the participation of youth in the programme.
