The governor pointed out that though the government of India looks to the West for trade and commerce, it has, in recent years clearly chalked out its priorities with the introduction of Look East Policy, and that Korea being one of the economic giants of the Continent, it is inevitable that the two countries maintain better economic relations for mutual benefit.
