Ambassador Kim made these remarks today while presenting his letters of Credence to Guyana’s President, Bharrat Jagdeo.
“Many countries around the world including some Latin American and Caribbean countries are working to establish e-government infrastructure with the support of the Korean Government, so these days modern countries and societies may need to improve better infrastructure for ICT… to be well connected with the rest of the world,” Ambassador Kim explained.
In July last year a delegation comprising representatives from various public and private sector agencies in the Republic of Korea met President Jagdeo during a visit to Guyana as they brainstormed investment potentials.
The team was led by Director General of Latin American and Caribbean Affairs Bureau in Korea’s Foreign Affairs and Trade Ministry Choo Jonh Youn who told the Government Information Agency (GINA) that possibilities were spotted in the mining, fisheries and agriculture sectors.
In 2005 Guyana and the Republic of Korea signed an agreement for the promotion and protection of investments. The agreement was aimed at setting the stage for Guyana to seek investment opportunities in Korea.
