In another move to reposition Africa’s economy in the Covid-19 pandemic era as well as the post-Covid19 era, Globe Chambers of Commerce and Industry is putting up the Korea – Africa World Economic And Investment Summit for 2021.
With the Nigerian version of the event failing to hold early 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions, the organization is stepping it up in a bid that other African countries will benefit from its dividends.
Korea – Africa World Economic And Investment Summit will be a networking point for Korean and African investors as Globe Chambers of Commerce and Industry is proposing that the best way out of the global economic crisis is multiple and strategic collaborations.
Hon. Nwabueze Buchi George, the president of Globe Chambers of Commerce and Industry, in an announcement about the event, said strategic partnership is key to global development at the moment.
“Covid-19 has shown us few things. We have learnt a few lessons that the most important thing is humanity and every sustainable plan that will make us live well in a good environment. I feel we’ve also come to understand during the lockdown that we’re all patches of islands, but together, we are the world”
“No nation has everything, so we all need to get other things in a way that will be mutually beneficial to all of us”, he said.
He revealed that in Asia as well as the global economy, Korea has always been a key player whom Africa can learn a lot from in terms of industrialization, human capital development and strategic planning.
Hon. Buchi George said that Globe Chambers of Commerce and Industry has strategically looked into what Africa and Korea can mutually offer each other and there is a whole lot in various sectors.
“There is a reason we expanded this programme to Africa. We understand that the economy of one’s neighbours can affect his own, so we believe that if we look beyond Nigeria to develop the entire African content, we will be getting it right”
“Economically, Africa needs to be great again and while the Covid-19 pandemic is still on, we need to put down viable recovery plans that can be kicking off any time. 2021 is a good time for us and we believe by then, everywhere will open up for us and other organizations working hard to make the world a better place” Hon. Nwabueze Buchi George said.
