The Republic of Korea forges closer ties with South Africa

The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in South Africa, in co-operation with the Association of Korean companies which have a presence in South Africa, has visited a Safety Home in Saulsville Pretoria and performed community service there.

According to Ambassador Lee, this program has been organized in order to encourage Korean companies to perform 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 Korean companies need to enhance their commitment to the local community. On this occasion, a sustainable relationship between the Safety Home and locally-based Korean companies is expected to develop and community service by the Korean community is likely to expand in the future.

Korean participants of this event have spent some time with the children in the Safety Home, playing soccer, badminton and reading books with them.

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.

On 29 June 2012 The Embassy of the Republic of Korea in South Africa, Samsung C&T, Daewoo International Corporation and KOTRA South Africa (Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency) donated a television, washing machine, books, stationery, sports goods and food vouchers to the Leamogetswe Safety Home in Saulsville, Pretoria.
