President Park Geun-hye will be accompanied by a huge entourage of 169 businesspeople on her upcoming visits to three African nations and France.
The president is visiting Ethiopia, Uganda, Kenya and France from Wednesday until June 5.
Representatives from 22 big corporations, 102 small and mid-sized companies and 42 state-run companies will accompany Park on her trip.
Ahn Jong-beom, the senior presidential secretary for economic affairs, said the Africa trip will offer Korean businesses a bridgehead to advance into the largely unexplored market there.
The three countries boast more than five-percent GDP growth rates, which offers plenty of opportunities for Korean businesses, according to Cheong Wa Dae.
