The Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat (TCS) delegation headed by Secretary-General YANG Houlan paid a courtesy visit to the Association of North East Asia Regional Governments (NEAR) Secretariat on July 5, 2017. Mr. HONG Jong-kyoung, Secretary-General of NEAR welcomed the TCS delegation and introduced the activities of NEAR. Secretary-General YANG and Secretary-General HONG exchanged views on the current situation of Northeast Asia and future prospects of trilateral cooperation. They both shared the view that cooperation among local governments is of great significance because unlike central governments, local governments are relatively free from international politics and can address imminent, practical issues. Both Secretary-Generals agreed to further develop cooperation between the TCS and NEAR Secretariat.
