Congratulatory speech by H.E. Mohammed El Amine DERRAGUI Amb. of Algeria (10am, Sep. 24th Tuesday at the 20th Intl Conference Hall, Korea Press Center)

To have been enthusiastic since presenting my credentials on April, 2015 during last 4 & half years for allowing Korean public to understand that South Korea & Algeria are committed to mutual understanding and collaborating in all fields, attached to peace and stability on the regional and international levels, seems to allow me to receive this morning’s Proud Amb. Awards in my opinion.

As you all participants are aware of it, Korea and Algeria are strategic partners since March 2006 and trade exchanges and the economic cooperation has reached an appreciable level, deemed to grow in the future.
Moreover, with regard to governance and economic management, the Algerian Government applied sound policies that improved the predictability and transparency, resulted in a significant growth outside hydrocarbons and strengthened the country’s external financial position. The economic diversification is considered as paramount through investment promotion, industrial policy, agriculture and rural renewal and the construction of infrastructures (public works, water resources, environment, and services, to name just a few).
So I firmly believe that South Korea can prove to be one of the key partners of the Algerian government on the path of socioeconomic diversification & industrial growth. Once again, thank you for allowing me to receive the 2019 Proud Amb. Award. Thank you.

We Ambassadors understand that Pride Korea Awards are best awards within the Republic of Korea which are awarded upon proud Koreans & foreigners who contributed to national dignity & pride such as politics, economy, society, culture arts, sports, corporate management and autonomy administration etc., to name just a few.

We should not forget that only change & innovation decide ups and downs of respective industries, to say nothing of rise and fall of a nation. In that respect, ceaseless self-complete reform's efforts are needed in order to greet a historic moment which paves the way for a new future vision, growing with regional society, nation and the humankind.

We 4 Proud Amb. Awards recipients also are sympathetic with such noble purport of Pride Korea Awards and personally I also as Ethiopia Amb. to the Republic of Korea am very honored & priviledged to be selected as one recipient of this year's Proud Amb. Awards.

As all of you audience are aware of it, with the official visit of Ethiopia Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali at the end of Aug. this year as an important impetus, Korea diplomacy is assessed to pave the way for a new momentum to diversify its horizon to Africa. In reality, MOUs concluded through both Summit Diplomacy of this year between Korea & Ethiopia include Minister-level joint committee establishment MOU, standardization cooperation MOU, environment cooperation MOU, EDCF project loan contract, to name just a few as well.

I also as Ethiopia Amb. to the Republic of Korea am very pleased that the Embassy of Ethiopia contributed not a little to such fruitful Summit Diplomacy between Korea & Ethiopia and look forward to cooperating more closely with Korean government for more many strategic partnerships including the private sectors like Pride Korea Awards.

Thank you.
