    The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) and the Korea-Africa Foundation signed a memorandum of understanding for the implementation of several joint programmes and projects on youth training and capacity-building to further understand cultural and educational issues in the African continent, enhance cooperation on information and experience sharing and conduct joint research projects and studies.

    Dr. Salim M. AlMalik, ICESCO Director-General, and Mr. Lim Jae-hoon, Vice President of the Korea-Africa Foundation, signed the memorandum of understanding, on Monday (October 31, 2022), at ICESCO Headquarters, in Rabat, in the presence of the delegation of the Korean Foundation and a number of heads of sector and department of ICESCO.

    Afterward, Dr. AlMalik reaffirmed that this agreement comes within the framework of ICESCO’s new vision and strategic orientations, which are based on cooperation with all parties for the benefit of the Member States and Muslim communities around the world, adding that cooperation and partnership agreements should include specific programmes and projects likely to achieve the best-desired results.

    ICESCO Director-General pointed out that this agreement will be the start of great cooperation with many Korean institutions, especially in the fields of education and scientific research, in which Korea has made outstanding achievements.
    He also explained that ICESCO prioritizes youth and women capacity-building, particularly in the neediest Member States, most notably African countries, in coordination and cooperation with their National Commissions for Education, Science and Culture.

    For his part, Mr. Lim Jae-hoon expressed his happiness at the signing of the memorandum of understanding, which is the result of a continuous work effort between the two parties to enhance knowledge sharing in youth capacity-building and expand the scope of cooperation between ICESCO and the Korea-Africa Foundation, adding that ICESCO is one of the major organizations working in Africa.
