South Korea's top trade official met his Myanmar counterpart Tuesday to discuss ways to enhance bilateral cooperation, Yonhap reported on 5 June quoting Seoul's trade ministry.

Trade and Energy Minister Joo Hyung-hwan and Myanmar's Minister for Commerce, Dr Than Myint, held the talks in Seoul, the ministry said, noting that the two ministers agreed to set up an organization, dubbed "Korea Desk," in Yangon to assist South Korean firms in making inroads into the Myanmar market.

The two ministers also agreed to pass on Seoul's knowledge in exports so that Myanmar's businesses and exporters could explore more overseas markets, the report said.
