WHAT:
Resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue has been and remains one of the greatest priorities on the Korean peninsula. Even so, significant efforts have been made to foster a climate of cooperation and reconciliation between the two Koreas. Against this backdrop, The Incheon Free Economic Zone has been studying the feasibility of creating a Joint Development Zone with the Kaesong Industrial Zone in the North. The geographic proximity of Incheon and Kaesong, along with their complementary economic activities, presents the possibility of creating a new paradigm for future cooperation between South and North and has far-reaching implications for inter-Korean relations. Mayor Ahn Sang-soo has recently traveled to North Korea and will share his vision for this future. Ambassador Donald P. Gregg (The Korea Society), Professor Jeong-Ho Roh (Columbia Law School), Shin Hyun-Yoon (Yonsei University), and Seo Jung Uck (former ROK Minister of Science & Technology) will provide commentary.

This forum is cosponsored with the Center for Korean Legal Studies of Columbia Law School, The Korea Society and the Center for American Legal Studies at Yonsei College of Law.
