Morocco Takes Part in First Korea-Africa Summit in Seoul

The first Korea-Africa Summit kicked off in Seoul on Tuesday, under the theme “The Future We Build Together: Shared Growth, Sustainability and Solidarity”. HM King Mohammed VI is represented at the Summit by speaker of the House of Representatives, Rachid Talbi El Alami. The Summit, which was launched by Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol, will be attended by over 45 African countries, who will spend two days discussing ways of developing cooperation between Korea and African states, particularly in the economic, energy and digital fields. This event is intended to lay the foundations for close cooperation between Africa and Korea, which in 2006 announced the “Korea Initiative for African Development”, through which this Asian country affirmed its commitment to sharing its development experience with the African continent.
