Seoul, 1st December, 1982
With reference to Article 6 of the Agreement on Economic and Technological Cooperation between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Republic of Korea, signed to-day, I have the honour to inform you as follows:
By virtue of Article IX of the Agreement on encouragement and reciprocal protection of investments between the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Republic of Korea, concluded at The Hague on 16 October 1974, a Mixed Commission was established which may be convened at the request of either Contracting Party to discuss any matter pertaining to the implementation of the said Agreement. Also the Agreement signed to-day provides for a mixed commission. As both agreements have as a primary goal the promotion of economic cooperation, the subjects to be discussed by the two commissions will in general be closely linked. With a view thereto it would be preferable that the meetings of the two commissions will in principle be combined. In practice this would imply that one mixed commission could meet, to discuss matters relating to the implementation of both agreements.
Your confirmation of the above will be very much appreciated.
I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assurances of my highest consideration.
