Today, November 4, the Foundation’s office in Seoul opened a seminar there to assess prospects for expanding the U.S.-ROK alliance into new areas of cooperation. Three presentations focused on international peacekeeping, overseas development assistance, and maritime security. Co-hosted by the Foundation’s Center for U.S. Korea Policy (CUSKP), this is the second discussion in a three-part series examining opportunities for U.S.-ROK cooperation. Speakers include: The Hon. Hwang Jin-Ha, Member of the ROK National Assembly; Choi Kang, a professor at the Seoul-based Institute of Foreign Affairs and National Security; Balbina Y. Hwang, a visiting professor at the National Defense University in Washington D.C.; Rear Admiral Michael McDevitt, a Vice President at the Center for Naval Analysis; Scott Snyder, director of the CUSKP; and Edward Reed, who heads up the Foundation’s Korea office. Former Prime Minister and Asia Foundation Trustee Lee Hong-koo opened the seminar by noting the many contributions the Foundation has made toward strengthening Korea-U.S. relations over the past 50 years. The Friends of The Asia Foundation in Korea, a membership organization under the leadership of former Prime Minister Lee, provided support for the seminar.
