Mahama Speaks At 2023 Korea Africa Business Summit


Former President John Dramani Mahama delivered the keynote address at the 2023 Korea-Africa Business Summit in Seoul, South Korea.

The two-day summit, which began on May 25, 2023, is at the invitation of the Korea-Africa Foundation to give the keynote speech to
coincide with the African Union Day celebration and attracted entrepreneurs, government officials, and others in various fields from African countries and South Korea.

The theme of the summit is centered around Finance 4.0, Innovation and Youth Entrepreneurship, Trade, Industrialisation, Energy, and Resources. The Korea-Africa Foundation believes that discussions surrounding these critical issues can help stimulate the development of Africa.

The Foundation also developed a programme to commemorate the Africa Day celebration called “Africa Night,” aimed to promote African culture at the Summit.

The Korea-Africa Foundation intends to use this opportunity to strengthen exchange and cooperation with African countries and forge partnerships. President of the Foundation, Ambassador Woon-Ki Lyeo, said that Mr. Mahama’s presence at the event would serve as a stepping stone for Ghana’s partnership with the South Korean government.

Mr. Mahama’s special aide, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, signed the press release that disclosed these pieces of information from Seoul, South Korea.
