Korean business forge ties with local communities

Deputy Minister Ebrahim addresses guests

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in South Africa,  in co-operation with the Association of Korean companies having a presence in South Africa, visited Albert Luthuli Primary School in Bela-Bela, Limpopo and carried out community service.

Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Ebrahim Ebrahim attended this event and encouraged Korean companies to forge ties with local communities.
According to Ambassador Lee of the Korean Embassy in SA, this program has been organized in order to encourage Korean companies to participate in active community service.

Considering that the local presence and business activities of Korean companies has increased, the Korean community in South Africa believes that the companies need to enhance their commitment to the local community.
On this occasion, a sustainable relationship between a local educational institution and locally-based Korean companies is expected to develop and community service by the Korean community is likely to expand in future.
Korean participants of this event have spent some time in providing lunch for school children, repairing electric appliances and disinfecting kitchen and toilets in the school.

The co-operative relationship between Korea and South Africa is growing rapidly.
Trade volumes between the two countries amounted to $5.4 bn in 2011.
While there were only 35 Korean visitors to South Africa in 1992, this number increased to approximately 20,000 in 2011.
