German Ambassador to Seoul Norbert Baas held a reception for a group of visiting German magazine publishers at his residence in Seongbuk-dong, Seongbuk-gu, Seoul on Feb. 9, 2009.

Some 50 members of the Association of German Magazine Publishers came to Korea on Feb. 8, 2009 for four day visit.

The German delegation consists of 16 high level directors from different renowned German magazines. They will meet with representatives from the Korean media and IT-business.

As Korea is one of the leading countries with respect to mobile phones and internet, the German delegation is looking forward to deepening contacts and exploring new opportunities for cooperation between German and Korean media and publishing houses.

Earlier on Feb. 6, 2009 Amb. Baas attended the opening ceremony of "Die Galerie" in Cheongdam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul's posh southern area.
