The agreement seeks to effectively deal with current issues regarding international development cooperation and to enhance both internal and external understanding on various policies of the issue.
Based on the agreement, Ewha and MOFA will focus on improving the results of conferences held with the agendas of international cooperation, expanding internal and external support, understanding the official development assistance (ODA) affairs and policies set by the government and strengthening the status of the nation in the international cooperation sector.
