POSCO Helps Mozambique through New Community Movement


SEOUL, Jan. 30 (Korea Bizwire) — POSCO has been actively involved in the rehabilitation of people in Mozambique by teaching agricultural skills based on Saemaul Undong, or New Community Movement, which former President Park Chung-hee introduced in Korea in 1970s. Together with KOICA, it runs the Mozambique Saemaul Agricultural Training Center, which offers instruction in farming techniques to people in Manica, and supports their economic independence.
