A city in South Korea has recently named one of its streets ‘Kuching South Ro’ or translated in English to mean ‘Kuching South Street’ in celebration of its friendship with Sarawak’s Kuching South City Council (MBKS). Unveiled during a ceremony on Thursday (22 September 2022) in Guro City in South Korea, the naming of the street is in commemoration of the partnership between MBKS and Guro City as friendship cities.

As reported by Dayak Daily, the simple ceremony was attended by MBKS Mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng and Sarawak Deputy Premier, Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian. Previously, MBKS signed with Guro City as a friendship city in 2012.

According to the MBKS Mayor, the naming of the road to Kuching South Ro was agreed upon during a meeting between both sides in 2019. It was meant to enhance the relationship between the two cities and to mark the 10th anniversary of their friendship cities status this year.

In a statement, Wee also expressed his gratitude to Guro City for their effort and kind gesture of naming the street. The MBKS Mayor further elaborated that for the past decade, MBKS and Guro City have not only built social, cultural and economic links but also contributed direct benefits locally, regionally and nationally through trade and tourism.
