On Sunday, May 30, Danish Prime Minister H.E. Mette Frederiksen and South Korean President H.E. Moon Jae-in had a virtual summit in which they agreed to elevate our two countries' relationship to a Comprehensive Green Strategic Partnership. The partnership has been in place for 10 years and the elevation marks a mutual interest in strengthening the cooperation on the green agenda.

The meeting was held on the first day of the 2021 P4G Seoul Summit. Both countries are active members of P4G (Partnering for Green Growth and Global Goals 2030) – Denmark having hosted the inaugural summit in 2018 and South Korea taking over the torch as host country in 2021. Both Heads of State underlined their commitment to working actively together to encourage countries, institutions, and the private sector to develop and promote tangible solutions to reach net-zero emission by 2050.

Furthermore, the leaders discussed the areas of health and life science, COVID-19 vaccines, renewable energy, and peace on the Koran Peninsula as further areas of deepened cooperation.
