MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Isko Moreno announced that the capital will be building a Korea Town in Malate, Manila.
In the Manila Public Information Office Twitter account, Moreno said that the matter was discussed last Tuesday when South Korean Ambassador Kim In-chul paid a courtesy call at his office.
"We are building Korea Town in the Malate area to showcase Korean culture right in the nation's capital. We also told His Excellency about how we benchmarked Myeong-dong's markets in Binondo, Manila," Moreno said.
Moreno said that the relationship between the capital and South Korea will strengthen by establishing Korea Town in Malate.
