POLI | TCS participated in the Asia Economic Community Forum 2017 – 2017.11.01-02

The TCS participated as a sponsor in the Asia Economic Community Forum 2017, held on October 31 - November 2, 2017 in Incheon, ROK. The theme of the AECF 2017 was “Neo-isolationism, the 4th Industrial Revolution and the Asian Community.” Secretary-General LEE Jong-heon delivered his congratulatory remarks in the opening ceremony, underlining the intrinsic values of trilateral cooperation as an independent cooperative framework for regional peace and prosperity. In the face of uncertainties posed by the 4th Industrial Revolution and the neo-isolationism, SG Lee called for more collective efforts to turn the uncertainties into opportunities to establish a regional community and stability in East Asia. 

Also, the TCS prize was awarded to the best delegate of the 9th Model Asian Union, a debate/proposal-based competition among the university students, which was conducted during the AECF 2017. The students presented the summary of their discussion and suggestions on the topic of ‘4th Industrial Revolution and Asian Community,’ and ‘4th Industrial Revolution and Youth Policies.’ On behalf of the TCS, Deputy Secretary-General YAMAMOTO Yasushi presented the award during the closing ceremony.
