Following the visit of Dr Firer in South Korea which took place upon their personal invitation Dr. Firer also visited large medical centers and met with the heads of health services there. Dr. Kim arrived in Israel on a reciprocal visit and also arrived at the offices of our institution for a personal visit with Dr. Firer.
The visit was extremely fruitful and both participants learned a great deal and each learned much from the experience of the other.
Upon the return of Dr. Kim to Korea he sent a brief letter to Dr. Firer in which he expressed his personal impressions. The following is a copy of that letter:
Now I came back home well from fantastic journey to Israel.
It was so honor and pleasure to be invited and enjoyed dinner with you in your office.
I learned a lot from this visit in Israel. I am more and more feeling friendly and respectful to Israel people.
Especially I am deeply impressed by your activities.
I would love to contribute if I could do something for you. It will be my great honor and pleasure.
Attached please find a photo taken with you.
With Best Regards,

Young-Woo
