Tanzania will open its first embassy in Korea on Jan. 31, according to diplomatic sources.
The Embassy of Tanzania in Japan has been dealing with relations involving Korea so far.
The diplomatic mission in Seoul will be led by Matilda Masuka, who presented credentials to President Moon Jae-in in November 2017.
The opening ceremony will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
On Jan. 31, the embassy will also host a business forum at 9 a.m. to mark its establishment and the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Tanzania and Korea.
The forum will take place at the Grand Hall of Hana Financial Group in Seoul.
“For the past 25 years, our two counties have been in close collaboration,” Masuka said in a press release.
“A lot has been accomplished in both government and private levels in sectors such as health, infrastructure, information and communication technology, trade and tourism.
“This is therefore another opportunity to explore more avenues and achieve new milestones.”
The forum will be in collaboration with the Tanzania Investment Center, the Tanzania Tourism Board, the Tanzania Private Sector Foundation and the Tanzania Development Authority.
From the Korean side the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Korea International Trade Association and the Korea Importers Association will participate.
