Beginning of a New Government in Korea 

Through the election for president in Korea, held on March 9th, candidate Yoon Suk-Yeol was elected as the new president of Korea. The President-elect will be sworn in as the 20th President of the Republic of Korea on May 10th. The new President-elect Yoon Suk-Yeol will have a 5-year term to preside over a country of 52 million people and with the tenth largest economy in the world. 

During the election campaign, President-elect Yoon Suk-Yeol promised to build “a new country through justice and common sense”. Especially, he promised to give priority to the post-Covid-19 economic recovery to small entrepreneurs and self-employed entrepreneurs. In addition, he said that he will accelerate the promotion of economic growth, strengthen the weakened social security and, on the other hand, normalize the real estate market. Additionally, he spoke of promoting Science & Technology and Culture and undertaking efforts to achieve carbon neutrality and digital transformation. 

Regarding campaign promises in the area of Foreign Affairs and National Security, the President-elect spoke of achieving normalization of relations with North Korea, including the full denuclearization of the North Korean country, strengthening the comprehensive partnership with the United States, as well as as it proposed to expand cooperation with neighboring countries. He promised to build a network of global cooperation with Latin America and with each world region. 

Korea-Brazil cooperation 

Korea and Brazil established diplomatic relations in 1959, and Brazil was the first country in Latin America to establish diplomatic ties with Korea. Today, Brazil is the largest recipient of Korean investments in Latin America, as well as an important cooperation partner as it is the country where the largest Korean community in the region has decided to put down its roots. In 2004, the two countries established the Comprehensive Cooperation Agreement for the Common Prosperity of the 21st Century and, since then, both have been expanding bilateral cooperation on the most varied fronts to achieve mutual benefit. 

Also, especially in the economic sector, the two countries are increasingly strengthening their cooperation relations. In 2021, Korea exported around USD 5.1 billion to Brazil and, on the other hand, Brazil exported around USD 5.7 billion, placing Korea in the 8th position of commercial partner of Brazil. In accumulated investments alone, the amounts add up to 10 billion dollars, which include investments in companies such as Samsung, LG and other 120 Korean companies established in Brazil. In addition, the aspect of complementarity between Korea, a strong country in the digital area, and Brazil, a leading country in natural resources, means that it still has enormous potential for cooperation to be explored. 

Not only that, the exchange between the people of the two nations is also being revitalized. The Korean Government has annually selected Brazilian students to have the opportunity to study at Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Korea by offering scholarship programs, as well as has made efforts to introduce Korean language and culture to Brazilians. Especially in 2023, the Korean community in Brazil will celebrate 60 years of immigration, an opportunity for which the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the General Consulate in São Paulo are preparing various commemorative events. 




Início de um Novo Governo na Coreia 

Através da eleição para presidente na Coreia, ocorrida em 09 de março último, o candidato Yoon Suk-Yeol foi eleito como novo presidente da Coreia. O Presidente eleito tomará posse como o 20° Presidente da República da Coreia no dia 10 de maio. O novo Presidente eleito Yoon Suk-Yeol terá um mandato de 5 anos para presidir um país de 52 milhões de pessoas e com a décima maior economia do mundo. 

Durante a campanha eleitoral, o Presidente eleito Yoon Suk-Yeol prometeu construir “um novo país através da justiça e bom senso”. Especialmente, prometeu dar prioridade para a recuperação econômica pós Covid-19 aos pequenos empresários e empreendedores autônomos. Além disso, disse que irá acelerar a promoção do crescimento econômico, fortalecer a fragilizada seguridade social e, por outro lado, normalizar o mercado imobiliário. Adicionalmente, falou em promover a Ciência & Tecnologia e a Cultura e empreender esforços para concretizar a neutralização do carbono e a transformação digital. 

Relativamente às promessas de campanha sobre a área de Relações Exteriores e Segurança Nacional, o Presidente eleito falou em alcançar a normalização das relações com a Coreia do Norte, incluindo a desnuclearização plena do país norte coreano, fortalecer a parceria abrangente com os Estados Unidos, bem como propôs expandir a cooperação com os países vizinhos. Prometeu construir uma rede de cooperação global com a América Latina e com cada região mundial. 

Cooperação Coreia-Brasil 

Coreia e Brasil estabeleceram relações diplomáticas 1959, tendo sido, o Brasil, o primeiro país da América Latina a estabelecer laços diplomáticos com a Coreia. Hoje, o Brasil é o maior receptor de investimentos coreanos na América Latina, como também é um importante parceiro de cooperação por ser o país onde a maior comunidade coreana da região decidiu fincar suas raízes. Os dois países estabeleceram, em 2004, o Acordo de Cooperação Abrangente para a Prosperidade Comum do Século 21 e, desde então, ambos vem expandindo a cooperação bilateral nas mais variadas frentes para o alcance do mútuo benefício. 

Ainda, especialmente no setor econômico, os dois países vem estreitando cada vez mais as suas relações de cooperação. Em 2021, a Coreia exportou em torno de 5,1 bilhões de dólares ao Brasil e, na via contrária, o Brasil exportou em torno de 5,7 bilhões de dólares, colocando a Coreia no posto de 8a. parceira comercial do Brasil. Somente em investimentos acumulados, os valores somam 10 bilhões de dólares, que incluem investimentos em empresas como Samsung, LG e outras 120 empresas coreanas estabelecidas no Brasil. Além disso, o aspecto da complementaridade entre a Coreia, país forte na área digital, e o Brasil, país líder em recursos naturais, faz com que ainda tenha um potencial enorme de cooperação a ser explorado. 

Não bastando, o intercâmbio entre os povos das duas nações também está sendo revitalizado. O Governo coreano tem, anualmente, selecionado estudantes brasileiros para que tenham a oportunidade de estudar em cursos de bacharel e mestrado na Coreia por meio de oferecimento de programas de bolsas de estudo, bem como tem despendido esforços para apresentar o idioma e a Cultura coreanas aos brasileiros. Especialmente em 2023, a comunidade coreana no Brasil comemorará 60 anos de imigração, oportunidade para a qual a Embaixada e o Consulado Geral em São Paulo da República da Coreia estão preparando variados eventos comemorativos.
