Korea and the Czech Republic established a strategic partnership in 2015 after establishing diplomatic ties in 1990.

They are cooperating in a wide range of fields such as economy, culture and tourism, such as designating the “Year of Mutual Exchange” in 2020.

The honorary consulate in Busan will contribute to promoting economic and cultural exchanges, protecting domestic travelers, and promoting friendly cooperation.

Honorary Consul Kang Ho-chan said, "With the opening of the honorary consulate as an opportunity, we will make efforts to promote friendly relations between Korea and the Czech Republic, as well as to strengthen economic cooperation and cultural exchanges."

Ambassador Gustav Slamechka of Czech said, "Congratulations on the appointment of the honorary consul and the opening of the consulate, and I hope it will be helpful to Czech people visiting Korea as well as expanding economic, trade and friendly relations."

Meanwhile, Nexen Tire, a subsidiary of the Nexen Group, built a European plant in Zatetsu, Czech Republic, in 2019 to produce and sell tires.
