Earlier this year, the ICD announced that it is planning to invest up to $20bn in Korea. The announcement came as Al Shaibani met up with the then President-elect, Lee Myung-bak in Seoul.
Al Shaibani reportedly delivered a personal letter from Sheikh Mohammed to Lee, containing a congratulatory message on his election win and hopes of stronger ties between the two countries.
Lee, a former CEO of Hyundai Construction and Engineering, took up South Korea’s Presidency in February this year and pledged to form a business-friendly government, seeking ways of boosting foreign investment in Korea.
