At the third Interkorean-Summit under President Moon and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, much emphasis was put on economic issues. Part of the results of this summit included intentions to implement infrastructure projects with North Korea, among others a high-way and a rail-way project, as well as developing the telecommunication infrastructure in North Korea. While seeing the opportunities here, against the backdrop of sanctions against North Korea and the open question of denuclearization, companies wish to get further background on the matter and understand the realities of the situation.

Our speaker, Dr. Jin Park, is a long-time insider in such matter. He is currently serving as the Chairman of Korean-American Association, and he is leading the Asia Future Institute, an independent policy think. He was a Member of Parliament in the 16th, 17th, and 18th Sessions of the National Assembly. During this time he served as the Chairman of Foreign Affairs, Trade and National Unification Committee of the National Assembly (2008-2010). In that capacity, he passed the KORUS FTA, North Korea Human Rights Act, ODA Law and PKO Law in his own committee. He is also serving as the President of Heidelberg Club International, Korea Chapter.

Our speaker, Dr. Jin Park will give his assessment on the situation. A panel discussion and opportunity for Q&A will follow.


We look forward to seeing you at this informational event.    

Barbara Zollmann President & CEO
