16th General Membership Meeting (25 November 2017)

The theme of PHILKOFA’s 16th General Membership Meeting this year was “PHILKOFA@16: Convergence of KOICA Scholars, “The Role of Scholars in Philippine Society.” The GMM aimed to highlight the activities conducted by PHILKOFA and impart them to new and old members. It was also an occasion to strengthen camaraderie and enhance linkages between KOICA and PHILKOFANs from various government agencies.

PHILKOFANs were invited to be the keynote speaker and resource speakers in order to demonstrate the convergence of KOICA scholars which can be summed up in the saying: “We all do better when we work together.” The event was also attended by KOICA Country Director Shin Myung Seop and his staff and Korean Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines President Lee Ho-Ik.
