Nancy exemplified that Asia Traditional Orchestra (ATO) 2020 once organised by MOTAC’s International Cultural Relation division with the partnership of Asia Cultural Center (ACC) Gwanju in Korea via a digital platform.

In addition, the phone conversation also touched on the COVID-19 Immunisation Program where both leaders shared common talking points to give priority for the youths to achieve the herd immunity level which would give confidence to the public and inform the world that both nations will be ready to receive tourists when they are ready to open the borders.
Additionally, Nancy told her counterpart that it is important as the nearest neighbour country could jointly control the safety and adhere to the health safety to protect the people of both nations.
