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)
First of all, I as Algeria Amb. to the Republic of Korea am very honored & priviledged to be selected as one recipient of this year’s Proud Amb. Award 4 Ambassadors from the Host NDNnews & its affiliation organization Korea Culture Ambassador Friendship Association.
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.
