Africa Experts Forum & Korea-Africa Round Meeting wkf2011 l 2011.07.15

Compared to other nations, the awareness of Africa for Koreans is far behind. World recognize Africa as a rising sun, forecasting high economic growth rate in upcoming 10 years. In Africa, there are a lot of natural resource as well as potential growth engines such as workforce. To awake people and share knowledge with them, Maeil Business Newspaper organizes Africa related forums and meetings in the extent of the 18th Vision Korea ‘Colorful Africa’. These meetings were focused not on whether Korea invests on Africa or not, but on how we can invest effectively and efficiently. One of the participants said that the important matter that we should think for is to get to know Africa more and make appropriate development model which only Korea can provide. One of the examples can be Saemaul Movement. We organize not only the expert forum but also round meetings for general. We promise that this would not be the one time event.
