“We need to set up long-term strategic planning. Continuing to push the activities and keeping patient are the key words to develop stronger but successful relations with Africa. Selective business and concentration is essential to achieve the goals of African business in public and private sectors,” Dr. Jung Hae-jung, the President of M.K. International Inc. has dared to mention.

M.K. has been in Africa for the past three decades performing industrial engineering, construction, development and manufacturing as well as international trade in 21 countries in Africa, mainly focusing on the countries of Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Angola and South Africa.

“When Korea’s strength of advanced, efficient management skills and strong financial strength can match Africa’s abundant natural resources, ample manpower and giant markets, the economic synergy can be tremendous and the sky is limit,” Dr. Jung added.
We need more efforts for the fair and equal treatment of Africa to establish mutually beneficial relations.
