Yun arrives in Canada for summit with Prime Minister Trudeau on supply chains

TORONTO, Sept. 22 (Yonhap) — South Korean President Yoon Seok-yeol arrived in Canada on Thursday for a summit with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on building a stable supply chain of core minerals for EV batteries.

Yun, who is traveling between the UK, US and Canada, will arrive in Toronto and visit the University of Toronto to meet with AI experts.

According to Yoon’s office, Toronto is Canada’s largest economic hub and a global leader in the digital technology and AI industry.

In the evening, the president will meet with the Korean residents of the city. About 120,000 Koreans live in Toronto.

Yun will travel from Toronto to Ottawa on Friday for a summit with Prime Minister Trudeau. The two sides will meet at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Madrid in June to continue discussing ways to deepen the strategic partnership between the two countries ahead of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations next year. It’s a schedule.

According to Yoon’s office, the summit’s agenda includes how Canada can work together to establish a stable supply chain for core minerals and how Canada can help South Korean companies in the country.

Canada is an important producer of the core minerals needed to produce EV batteries, and South Korean companies are planning large-scale battery-related investments in the country.

After the summit, Yoon will leave for Seoul and return home on Saturday.
