One of the best examples is the ASEM-DUO Fellowship Programme…Rasmussen, Danish Prime Minister This program helps strengthen the relationship between the two countrires…we need the exchange to see the difference and the difference makes us richer in mind…Davisi Boontharm (DUO-France) The ASEM-DUO program provided me with an important experience that has changed my opinions about Korea and Asia. The experience will influence my future life… Matthias Wilde (DUO-Korea) Without your help, I wouldnt have been able to enrich my knowledge about Korea and to have this wonderful once in a lifetime experience… Titia Hoogenveen (DUO-Korea)
