Following his trip to Vietnam, Mr Yap signed a Strategic Partnership Agreement with Leencomm [ (주) 리앤컴 ], headed by Mr Jun-Kyung Lee, as Mileage Communications’ new Korean partner. Leencomm services a wide range of clients, including LG, Olive Young, Patagonia, and Save Zone.
While in Seoul, Mr Yap was gifted a range of cosmetics by Mr Lee, and was treated to a sumptuous lunch at a traditional Korean restaurant in Namsan. Under Korean President Moon Jae-in’s New Southern Policy, the Republic of Korea has pursued new regional initiatives to develop strategic ties with Southeast Asian countries, and this has led to more Korean companies expanding in ASEAN and India. Both Mr Yap and Mr Lee expressed interest in garnering new business opportunities from Korean companies looking to enter the ASEAN market.
