The Project for the Establishment of a National Museum in the drc, currently being carried out as a form of grant aid, is Korea’s first cultural oda project. The purpose of the project is for a newly constructed drc National Museum which will protect the cultural heritage of various ethnic groups, and to present their history in order to inspire national pride and integrate the nation. Furthermore, it is hoped that the project will aid the Congo perople in understanding their history correctly, and contribute to the historical and cultural development of their country. This case study can be used as a starting point for a more general understanding of African societies. It shows how this Project for the Establishment of a National Museum in the drc is different in nature than other previous oda projects, and asserts the importance and strategical selection of cultural oda projects.

    By 2012Korea’s untied aid rate was at 49% which was remarkably less than that of Japan’s 86%. oecd dac has been evaluating with more importance to tied aid and support to poorest countries along with the amount of oda itself. Korean government is making an endeavor to follow the untied aid policy since it could be more effective than the tied aid (Park 2016: 56-57).
