Now during COVID-19 when roadways through the skies and waters have become very limited, ICT has become even more indispensable than ever before for communication in all fields, and diplomacy is no exception. But there is a bigger reason Carlos Victor Boungou, Ambassador of Gabon to S. Korea, has been prioritizing ICT above all else. That’s because S. Korea and Gabon have been building a very strong bond while working closely together in the ICT field. Gabon established its e-government by cooperating with S. Korean companies and is continuing its efforts to decrease the digital gap, by establishing an electronic communications infrastructure across the nation. Thanks to the government’s efforts and support from the World Bank, Gabon has achieved its “Digital Revolution,” becoming the digital hub of Africa. This week, we’ll meet with the Ambassador of Gabon to S. Korea, Carlos Victor Boungou, to hear about Gabon’s ICT strategies to strengthen access to digital information, which has become a basic right for people of the 21st century, as well as the collaborative efforts between Gabon and S. Korea.
