Ambassador Le Gall was witness to a historic address by the newly elected President, Park Geun-hye, the first female President of Korea, on the theme ‘A new era of hope’.

Mr Le Gall said that the address illustrated the many commonalities between the development ambitions of the Korean and Seychelles government, with both having a strong emphasis on equality, economic revitalisation, and meeting security challenges.

“As responsible global leaders, both President Park and President Michel are eager to promote equality through open participation of all stakeholders in the economy’s strengthening and by giving to culture its full meaning and weight as a key factor of development,” said the ambassador.

He said he was optimistic that, under the leadership of both President Michel and President Park, Seychelles-Korea bilateral relations would reach new heights.

The ambassador added that he had conveyed the best wishes of the people and government of Seychelles to the newly inaugurated President of Korea.
