Africa and Korea to strengthen their relationship  this June

Korea and the African continent are gearing up for the inaugural Korea-Africa Summit, scheduled to be held from June 4th to June 5th at Kintex, Seoul, in South Korea.

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Zimbabwe has already begun the summit campaign with advertisements aired by the Republic of Korea. These adverts highlight the event as a milestone for Korea and Africa in shaping a future of sustainable prosperity as genuine partners.

President E.D. Mnangagwa is expected to be among the African heads of state who will grace the event.

The theme of the summit is “The Future We Make Together: Shared Growth, Sustainability, and Solidarity.” This theme embodies Korea’s commitment to fostering shared growth and enhancing cooperation and solidarity for a sustainable future with Africa, drawing on Korea’s development experience.

The emblem for the 2024 Korea-Africa Summit is inspired by Korean taeseuk colors and Pan-African colors. The ribbon graphic symbolizes the connection and unity between Korea and Africa. June 4th is dedicated to introductions, while June 5th will feature the Korea-Africa Business Summit.

At least 50 heads of state and government leaders are expected to participate in the event.

Topics such as agriculture, climate change, economic development, and technology are expected to dominate the summit. However, the Israel-Gaza and Russia-Ukraine conflicts are not expected to be part of the discussions (Source: Embassy of Korea in Zimbabwe).
