ASEAN-Korea Centre held Media Invitation Roundtable on the occasion of the visit by the Committee of Permanent Representatives to ASEAN

- The Media Invitation Roundtable demonstrated efforts by the Korean government to implement the ‘New Southern Policy’ and received views on the policy from the Committee of Permanent Representatives to ASEAN (25 June, ASEAN Hall, Seoul) -


Seoul, Korea - Korea – The ASEAN-Korea Centre (Secretary General Lee Hyuk) organized the Media Invitation Roundtable for the Korean press by inviting the Committee of Permanent Representatives to ASEAN (CPR) on 25 June 2018. The CPR is a consultative group of the Permanent Representatives of ASEAN Member States based in Jakarta. The Korean government has also been accrediting an Ambassador to the Mission of the Republic of Korea to ASEAN since its establishment in 2012. Kim Young-chae was newly appointed as the Korean Ambassador to ASEAN in January 2018.

 

This Roundtable provided a platform for the CPR members and the Korean press to share ideas on various aspects of the ASEAN-Korea relations, including diplomacy, security, economy, and culture. In particular, Korean Deputy Minister for Political Affairs Yoon Soon-gu was invited to explain the current status of the New Southern Policy by the Korean government. Furthermore, the CPR members including Ekkaphab Phanthavong, Permanent Representative of Lao PDR to ASEAN, shared the perspectives of ASEAN toward the New Southern Policy. It served as an opportunity for the Korean government to give briefings on the New Southern Policy in order to promote a mutually beneficial partnership between ASEAN and Korea, and gain support from ASEAN and the Korean press.

 

Lee Hyuk, Secretary General of the ASEAN-Korea Centre, said, “The ASEAN-Korea relations have become more diverse and closely connected beyond simply having diplomatic ties. They touch upon various sectors including society, culture, economy, and people-to-people exchanges. Moreover, the Korean government unveiled the New Southern Policy to elevate Korea’s relationship with ASEAN to the level of its relations with the four major powers. This Policy is indeed timely at the time when ASEAN and Korea are working closely together towards the realization of ‘One Community.’ I hope that the discussions and ideas shared during this Roundtable will serve as a momentum to further strengthen relationship between ASEAN and Korea.”
