    President Moon Jae-in has used his three-nation tour of Northern Europe to reconfirm cooperation and support from Finland, Norway and Sweden, three key partners in Korea’s policy toward "innovative growth."

    On the first leg of his trip in Finland, the president on June 10 signed memorandums of understanding on sectors related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, 6G telecommunication technology and joint research. Both nations also agreed to exchange policies on information and communications technology (ICT) and cooperate in 5G, artificial intelligence and big data. 

    Seoul and Helsinki will regularly hold meetings on the results of B5G (Beyond 5G) and B6G (Beyond 6G) and seek to form a next-generation global telecommunication network. 

    Also on June 10, the president visited Otaniemi, a district in Espoo nicknamed the "Silicon Valley of Europe." There, he received briefings on how Finland became the world’s most innovative country in around ten years. 

    On the second leg of his three-nation Northern European tour in Norway from June 11-13, he and the Norwegian government agreed to arrange a cooperative system in science and technology. 

    Seoul and Oslo will also establish a joint board on science and technology by 2020 to exchange related policies, as well as press ahead with joint research or projects in renewable energy and ICT. They will also cooperate in producing, recycling and storing hydrogen, a pollution-free energy source. 

    Arriving in Stockholm on June 13, President Moon will wrap up his Northern European tour after attending the Korea-Sweden Business Summit, where major corporations such as Ericsson, Volvo and IKEA will participate, to bolster bilateral cooperation in ICT and biohealth.
