Korea International Trade Association (KITA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding with National Commission for Export Promotion (CNPE) of Nicaragua on February 22nd, 2022 9:00am KST. The MOU was signed by Mr. Hyun Chul Kim, the Vice President for International Affairs Group of KITA, and Ms. Zeidy Bello, the General Director of Export Promotion & Technical Secretary of the CNPE. H.E. Rodrigo Coronel Kinroch, the Ambassador of the Republic of Nicaragua to the Republic of Korea, was in attendance to celebrate the occasion. Unfortunately, the event was held virtually because of COVID-19. Still, the ceremony remained a significant moment where two prominent economic organizations from two faraway countries came together to bolster future economic relationships and support the business community of both countries.
