  • Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange (KOFICE) carried forward a project "Creation of base for overseas expansion and convergence of Hallyu" to build infrastructure for experiencing Hallyu in Laos, the least developed country in Southeast Asia, aiming to contribute to activating cultural exchanges among countries, through constructing positive images of Korea and carrying out "Good Hallyu" activities in cooperation with our country's private enterprises expanded abroad. 

    In the first place, we carried out environment improvement works in two educational institutions located in Vientiane, the capital city of Laos and formed Multi-Media Rooms supporting diverse image content and educational materials.

    The private enterprise "INDOKO"of Korea, the largest distributor of Korean food in Laos, cooperated in this mission. INDOKO is one of the most representative Korean enterprises installed abroad, which has been making constant efforts to promote the excellence of Korean food materials by holding a K-Food Festival in Vientiane every year.

    The educational institutions where Multi-Media Rooms are installed are the National University of Laos, the country's most prestigious university, and the National Institute of Fine Arts, the cradle for Laotian traditional artists.
