Spain and Republic of Korea sign Bilateral Action Plan on Tourism Cooperation

Wednesday 22 January 2020

This Plan follows on from the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed during the State visit by the King and Queen to Seoul last October.

The MoU was signed with the aim of stepping up bilateral cooperation on tourism. The Plan, designed to further develop this MoU, seeks to enhance understanding between the two countries, promote the exchange of experiences and information in the field of tourism and cooperation, foster cooperation between the two governments and, in short, strengthen tourist relations between the two countries.

For Reyes Maroto, "this ministerial department wants tourists from South Korea to visit Spain more often as part of their trips to Europe. The Action Plan will help increase these tourist flows, thus enhancing more diversified and higher quality tourism from distant markets".

South Korea has become the third most important emitting market in Asia for Spain which, between January and November last year received 568,000 tourists from the country, an increase of more than 27% on the same period of 2018.
