1. Today is our Independence Day in Democratic Republic of the Congo. What do you think about DRC and South Korea relationship currently?

Response: Mr. Rohan F. Britto
Bonjour. Thank you for receiving us and extending the warm Congolese hospitality we have been enjoying. I would like to congratulate you and the people of this great nation on the 61st Independence Day.

Let me begin by introducing you to our executive team who have joined me here today with the sole purpose of not just establishing a strong business presence in DRC but also to share our knowledge and help the Congolese people grow with our foundation value of “Smart Job Creation” for the local community

I have with me this charismatic and noble gentleman Chairman Keun-Young Kim, who not just heads our conglomerate but also is a mentor for each of us with his visionary and humanitarian qualities, enabling us to achieve our goals along with human values.

Mr. J.W. Lee is President and CEO of J.O Engineering – A Global Distributor of Hyundai Packaged Power Solutions which we intend to introduce to this DRC as we have successfully done with many other countries globally.

Finally, I am Rohan F. Britto, Managing Director of WTIA across Middle East, Africa and Europe with the sole responsibility of ensuring whatever we do or wherever we go, we deliver not just technology to our partners but also embed the values which are so close to our heart and working philosophy.

Response: Chairman Kim
First of all, I would like to congratulate the 61st Independence Day of Democratic Republic of the Congo, which became independent in 1960. In addition, we hope that you will overcome the corona pandemic situation well, also I hope that those affected by the sudden eruption of the Niragongo volcano that occurred on the 22nd of last month will recover soon. The Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Republic of Korea have maintained deep relationship since the establishment of diplomatic relationship in 1963. Therefore, Korea has become a major trading partner of Democratic Republic of the Congo. I know that development cooperation is actively underway, including the project to build the Congo National Museum through the support of the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). Major minerals, including cobalt, the main raw material for batteries required for Korean electric vehicles, are being exported to Korea from DRC. We firmly believe and hope that these mutual trade and economic cooperation, where vaccines, kits and synthetic resins are imported, will develop significantly in the future.
