POLI | 9th Northeast Asian Cooperation International Symposium was held in Busan, ROK – 2017.10.21

On October 21, 2017, the 9th Northeast Asian Cooperation International Symposium under the theme of “Trump Administration’s Foreign Policy and Trilateral Cooperation between China, Japan and the ROK” was held in Busan, ROK. The symposium was co-organized by Dongseo University (ROK), Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (China) and Keio University (Japan). Distinguished scholars and senior diplomats from the three countries participated in the symposium and shared their insights on pressing issues in Northeast Asia. Secretary-General LEE Jong-heon attended the symposium and delivered the keynote speech.

In the speech, SG LEE briefly introduced the development of the trilateral cooperation mechanisms, achievements made in spite of the obstacles, and the role of the TCS in promoting the trilateral cooperation. He stressed that the three countries should “seek the greatest common divisor” rather than mainly focusing on divergences. He concluded the speech by calling upon the three countries to create a favorable environment with joint efforts to convene the Trilateral Summit in Japan within this year.
