KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is to make a two-day working visit to South Korea beginning tomorrow, during which he is scheduled to launch Malaysia Day at the Yeosu Expo 2012 hosted by the port city of Yeosu.
A Foreign Ministry statement said today the Malaysia Pavilion at the exposition would highlight efforts to protect the maritime and coastal environment and promote Malaysia as an eco-tourism destination.
It would also enhance Malaysia's profile as a nation which takes responsibility to protect the natural environment, it said.
Muhyiddin is also scheduled to meet with South Korean Prime Minister Kim Hwang-Sik in Seoul and discuss issues of bilateral, regional and international interest, the statement said.
It also said that the visit would strengthen bilateral ties in terms of trade, investment, education and tourism as well as science and technology exchange.
Muhyiddin had visited South Korea twice after becoming the deputy prime minister, in July last year as the education minister and in March this year to attend the Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul. -- BERNAMA
