On July 31st, the 6th KASC hosted its Final Forum at Coex Convention Center, co-sponsored by the Korea International Trade Association (KITA). 6th KASC delegates and KITA’s Goodwill Ambassador students presented various U.S.-Korea related topics, including Peace and Security, Environmental Law, Art and Culture, and Business.
Kevin Kim, member of ISC Board of Directors, delivered a warm keynote speech reflecting back on his JASC experience and encouraged the 6th KASC delegates to stay in touch with fellow alumni and ISC in the future. A panel of experts were also invited to listen to the delegates’ presentations and offer feedback and suggestions. The invited panelists were Michelle Lee Jones, MA student at Seoul National University and JASC alumna, Dr. Bong Young-Shik, Asan Institute for Policy Studies, and Mr. Peter Beck, Asia Foundation.
During Q&A sessions, the audience asked many questions to the presenters and the panel speakers, making the Final Forum very engaging and interesting from beginning to end. Notably, one Q&A session nearly became a debate when a member of the audience asked the 6th KASC Peace and Security Roundtable to give more specifics about its new recommended policy and the meaning of “trust politik” towards North Korea. This was a great opportunity for the delegates to further interact with the audience, and show the hard work and passion they had put into theirs roundtables throughout the month-long conference.
The Forum was followed by a networking reception. Delegates enjoyed a delicious buffet with alumni, guests, and supporters. On behalf of KASC, ISC would like to sincerely thank KITA for making this Final Forum such a success.
