Former army officer Moon Yong-Jo is now busy doing his international businesses and international exchanges. He spent nearly three decades in the South Korean Army before he set up the "Pinco World," an enterprise for realizing his dream of global exchanges and friendship several years ago.
As the chairman and CEO of the "Pinco World," he is tied up with a hectic schedule for visiting many nations in Africa and meeting with top foreign envoys serving in Seoul. The Seoul Times recently interviewed Chairman Moon for his activities and philosophy.
Q1:What are the international exchanges and international businesses you are involved in?
A1: Aa part of my international exchanges, I started last year "Dream Egg Movement," through which I and other members parcel out plastic eggs to the people who lost dreams and hopes in the world particularly in the poor Third World countries. I have visited military installations, prisons, schools, and various organizations for lectures and for the "Dream Egg Movement." So far, I am quite satisfied with the results. They all want to join me for this movement.
I also plan to help people around the world who are suffering from the natural calamities like earthquakes.
As for my internal business I plan to export to Africa soybean milk and other food and beverages. I will also bring local construction companies to Africa for the construction projects. Also solar energy companies will be send there by me.
As for international exchanges in education I m making an arrangement for local Changwon National University to set set up an Asia research center in a Nigerian university.
Q2: We are aware that you are very popular among the foreign ambassadors in Seoul, with which ambassadors you maintain good relations?
A2: I am particularly well acquainted with the foreign envoys from such countries as Nigeria, Angola, Tunisia, Cote d'Ivoire, Bolivia, and Equator. I enjoy hobnobbing with them for personal friendship as well as business and cultural exchanges.
Q3: Why are you involved yourself in international exchanges?
A3: My ultimate purpose for international exchanges lies in helping the needy people in poor countries. I try to serve as a medium for connecting the high technology of South Korea with the developing African countries. For this I believe that "Dream Egg Movement" will be quite effective.
Q4: You were decorated with various awards while serving in the army. What were the secrets?
A4: I served in the military for 33 years as an officer. I was one of the highly decorated officers in the history of South Korean Army. I received 180 awards during my service. I did not aim for reward or award, I just did my duty sincerely and very hard.

A5: I established "Pinco World" in 2013 for international business and international exchanges. I exports food and beverage products and clothes to the countries of Africa and other areas. We are going to supply African and Latian American nations with South Korean electric power generators.
I also bring Korean arts and performances to those countries for international exchanges. I plan to export the "Korean Wave" throughout the world.
Q6: Let us give you a personal question. What sorts of sports or martial arts did you practice? How do you maintain your health these days?
A6: As a boy I enjoyed practing all kinds of sports and martial arts. I am master of such martial arts as Taekwondo, Aikido, Kendo, and Special Assault Martial Art. I also hold license for judges for all the martial arts mentioned. But, now I enjoy practicing soccer and golf games to maintain my health.
