Welcome to the website of Korea International Cooperation Agency.Greetings to all, this is Lee Mi-kyung, President of KOICA.
At KOICA, we strive to implement a more transparent and efficient aid system for our country in order to be globally recognized.
Hello, we welcome you to the official website of KOICA. As the 12th president of KOICA, soon to celebrate its 30th anniversary, I feel pleased and honored to begin the journey of international development cooperation with all of you.
KOICA is currently at a critical point in its history as it must not only reflect our government's foreign affairs policies as well as internal and external policy environment but also abide by international and universal rules and standards to execute ODA projects of principle that contribute to achieving SDGs.
KOICA will return to the basic spirit and principles of international development cooperation and lead the eradication of poverty, advancement of human rights, and achievement of gender equality founded upon humanitarianism. We will also contribute to the common prosperity of humanity and the promotion of peace throughout the world through sustainable development. In the process, KOICA will strive to fulfill its role as a platform for systematic and comprehensive grants.
In addition, KOICA will correspond to the diplomatic vision of the new regime, "Peace, Democracy, and Human Rights", through "people's diplomacy ODA" with citizens, "public diplomacy ODA" to earn the hearts of our global neighbors, and "cooperation diplomacy ODA" supporting developing countries to implement SDGs.
Through these projects by KOICA, we hope that our people can realize a bigger vision as responsible citizens of the world, and dream of a global coexisting community in which the dignity of mankind and peace are maintained and sustainable development is enabled.
Based on my accumulated experience over 20 years of civil campaigns and another 20 years of legislative efforts in the national assembly, I will do my best to ensure KOICA's innovation and fresh growth.
