  • Ambassador's Greetings
  • In the year of 206th anniversary ~ of the Independence of the Republic of the Paraguay, and in coincidence with the celebration of 55 years of our diplomatic relationship with the Republic of Korea, it is an honor and pleasure to present the new web page of this Diplomatic Representation.

    Friendly relations with the Republic of Korea have not only been strengthened throughout the last five decades, but they have managed to reach maturity in its various manifestations. Although the link with this Asian nation has been characterized by its strength in the present this has become even more pronounced with the conviction of the Government of Paraguay to play a more active role and greater prominence in the international community.

    Since the assumption of President Horacio Cartes, we have worked very hard at regional and global levels to strengthen bilateral and multilateral relations to face the challenges of our own development, such as the reduction of poverty, the creation of jobs, mainly for young people, and technical development.In our vision, it is not possible to achieve the previously mentioned goals without giving a relevant role to the state of law, respect for human rights and a political system based on democracy. These are State virtues that must go together with judicial stability and respect to foreign and domestic investments, fundamental axes of the current Government state policy.

    Culture is also an essential vehicle for understanding and bringing together different nations, that is why we are committed, along with Korean Institutions, in different projects that will allow it to further strengthen the friendship between both peoples. This leads me to remember that the first Korean migrants arrived in Paraguay 52 years ago.
