Event description
Please join SAIS Korea Studies and Asia Programs for a conference that explores cooperation between South Korea, ASEAN countries, and India.

About this Event

With superpower rivalries and regional tensions posing challenges to South Korea’s broader interests, Seoul is placing ASEAN countries and India at the center of its foreign policy agenda. South Korea’s New Southern Policy (NSP) aims to elevate South Korea’s ties with India and ASEAN nations on par with Seoul’s four major diplomatic partners, the U.S., China, Russia, and Japan.

Please join SAIS Korea Studies Program, SAIS Asia Programs, and the Korea Development Institute School of Public Policy and Management for Korea in Asia: Expanding Trade and Security Relations with ASEAN and India, which features three panels exploring avenues of expanding cooperation. The first panel focuses on economic cooperation—trade, investment, and flows of people—between the ROK economy and the economies of Southeast Asia and South Asia. The second panel will examine security cooperation, ranging from coordination on key foreign policy issues to defense imports and joint exercises. The third panel will bring in China, the U.S., and Japan and examine how South Korea, Southeast Asia, and South Asia might cooperate, especially if the China-U.S. and ROK-Japan relationships deteriorate further.

This is a free public event. Coffee break and lunch are provided.
