MINISTRY OF COMMERCE, INDUSTRY AND ENERGY

Dear Mr. Meisen:
Thank you for your letter of 19 July to President Kim Dae-jung, which has been forwarded to us for a reply.
You may be aware that power grid interconnections in Northeast Asia have made relatively slow progress owing to the political division on the Korean Peninsula between South and Norh. However, the recent improvement in South-North relations gives promise of more rapid progress in the future.
Be that as it may, the Korean government and this ministry, in particular are certainly interested in learning more about your proposed UN Millenium Assembly and its possible implications for the integration of electricity grids on a global scale. Therefore, we would be grateful if you keep us informed of the progress of this project.
With best wishes, I remain,
