Mr Soon Chul Chun, Managing Director of Afko Imex Limited, said the company would forever sponsor the competition to memory of the late Mr Kim, who single-handedly sponsored Ghana's contingent to the 1988 Olympic Games held in Seoul, Korea. It was Mr Kim's leadership as the Managing Director of Afko that the company built the Bok Nam Kim Golf Club, he added. Mrs Kim, Chairperson of Afko Group of Companies on behalf of the company, presented a cheque of 10 million cedis to the club.
