THE former director general of the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries of South Korea will replace outgoing South Korean ambassador to Fiji Kim Seong-in next week.

Mr Kim will leave the country next Monday and his successor, Cho Shin-hee, will arrive into the country on January 12.

South Korean embassy counsellor Jeong-yeol Kwak said Mr Kim had done so much in his four years and three months of work in Fiji and that the Fiji-based South Korean embassy would miss him.

"Mr Kim worked hard to boost the bilateral relations between Fiji and South Korea in many ways," he said.

"He initiated the Korean Film Festival, the Grand Speaking Contest and he is also an expert on economical trade and development issues and he had succeeded in the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) to be set up in Fiji last year.

"He has done so much for the people of both countries in terms of people's cultural exchanges here in Fiji."

Ms Cho is one of five women appointed to head South Korean diplomatic missions in a reshuffle, according to the South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
