SEOUL, June 7 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's key wire service Yonhap News Agency signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a Chinese Cultural Center in Seoul on Wednesday to boost cultural exchanges between the two countries.

Under the accord, the cultural center, located in the Jongro Ward of central Seoul, will cooperate to push forward and publicize diverse cultural performances, exhibitions, and other kinds of events.

The agreement was signed between Lee Hong-ki, Yonhap News Agency's executive director, and the director of the center at Yonhap News Agency's headquarters in central Seoul.

"Cultural exchanges between the two countries will become more active and news from the two countries will spread more abundantly as the result of this agreement," Lee said.

The center will carry the new agency's logo in every publicity product for cultural events hosted by the center in the future, Yonhap said.

The first China Cultural Center in Asia, the sixth of its kind established overseas, opened in December 2004. The center was built to facilitate mutual understanding between the two countries by learning more about each other's cultures, history, and society.
