S. Korea Hopes to Expand ICT Cooperation With African Nations

Finance Minister Kim Dong-yeon said that South Korea hopes to expand cooperation with African countries in the ICT-based infrastructure sector.

Kim made the remarks on Wednesday in his speech at the opening ceremony for the annual meetings of the African Development Bank in the southern port city of Busan.

The minister said that South Korea has a prowess in the “smart infrastructure” sector, which could be a good alternative for Africa which has insufficient infrastructure such as roads, airports, and ports.


Stressing that Korea has been actively engaged in the establishment of smart infrastructure in Africa since 2006, Kim expressed hopes that South Korea with technological expertise and rich experiences in the sector will become a close partner for Africa.

The annual meetings, which will continue through Friday under the theme of “Accelerating Africa’s Industrialization,” drew representatives from about 80 countries including heads of state, business leaders and scholars.
