Asan Beijing Forum

Nov. 8, 2013 – The Asan Institute for Policy Studies to Host Asan Beijing Forum 2013

Seoul, South Korea – The Asan Institute for Policy Studies (www.asaninst.org/eng), the Charhar Institute and the China Institute of International Studies will co-host the inaugural Asan Beijing Forum 2013 on November 14-15, 2013 at the Park Hyatt Hotel in Beijing, China.

This year’s Forum, titled “Korea and China: Next 20 Years,” brings together leading experts, policymakers, scholars, and members of the media for two days to share their insights on the past, present, and future of Korea-China relations and the broader changes unfolding across Northeast Asia.

High-level key speakers include:

  • MJ Chung, The Asan Institute for Policy Studies
  • Han Sung-Joo, Former Minister of Foreign Affairs, ROK
  • Jonathan Pollack, The Brookings Institution
  • Scott Snyder, Council on Foreign Relations
  • Qin Yaqing, China Foreign Affairs University


From leadership changes to territorial and historical legacy disputes, Northeast Asia has recently been undergoing significant transformation. Last June, President Park made a highly successful state visit to China, which was viewed as equally successful as the ROK-US Summit in May. Does this signal a fundamental shift in the strategic calculus of countries on and around the Korean peninsula? We await your insight and expert assessment on the future of ROK-PRC relations.
