Noida: While K Pop and Korean entertainment industry has many fans in India, to further strengthen the Indian-Korean friendship, a team led by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea reached the Composite Government School, Noida. As many as 480 underprivileged students of the Composite Government School were a happy lot on September 28, 2022, Wednesday, when they received some gifts from the officials of Embassy of the Republic of Korea.
The team included officials from the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) and a Korean company based in Noida that distributed t-shirts, and food items to the students of Composite Vidyalaya, Block Bisrakh, Hoshiyarpur, Noida in the presence of the school principal, Rajni. The state-run KOTRA is the economic development arm of the embassy of Korea in India.

In its bid to motivate more Korean companies to come forward and offer their philanthropic services to India, the Korean government is providing incentives to them, and is bearing the shipping cost of the products they are importing to India and donating to various agencies. India has a total of 816 Korean companies in large, medium, small, and micro segments operating on it’s soil.
