Denmark and South Korea have decided to expand their cooperation to maritime navigation.

As informed, the two countries will jointly collaborate in the field of digitalization.

This entails the promotion of e-navigation and the development of advanced technologies that will be used by autonomous vessels, according to South Korea’s Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries.

Kim Young-choon, South Korea’s Minister of Oceans and Fisheries and Brian Mikkelsen, Denmark’s Minister of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, signed an amendment to the memorandum of understanding (MOU) in Seoul on February 23.

The MOU for the maritime cooperation between the countries was signed in May 2012 and it will now encompass artificial intelligence and big data as well.
