In-tae Oh, manager of Samsung Engineering, said, “I have been working in the construction industry for nearly 30 years, but I am experiencing severe difficulties for the first time because of the corona.” “People residing overseas have to enter Korea regularly, but they cannot go because of the isolation period. When entering Korea, please consider a plan to reduce the period of quarantine.”
“The operation of the Korean language school is becoming difficult due to the corona, and the funding from overseas Korean foundations is being reduced,” said Nam Ok-hyun, the head of the Korean Language School. “Please pay attention so that Korean children can learn Korean culture and language well.” In response, Rep. Lee Myung-soo, who is visiting Bahrain with Chairman Park, responded, “I will communicate the difficulties of the Bahrain Korean Language School to the Overseas Korean Foundation.”
Chairman Park then held a video call with Lieutenant Colonel Kim So-woon, who is dispatched by the Combined Navy Command as a member of the Cheonghae unit, and said, “I am reassuring to serve the country even in difficult situations.
