Research Association for a Northeast Asian Community

Dr. Seungryu Lee serves as chairman of the Research Association for a Northeast Asian Community. This group meets frequently to discuss how economic, cultural and political integration between China, Japan and Korea can be achieved. The Research Association for a Northeast Asian Community met today (September 22, 2011) for a conference entitled “Constructing a Common Economic Community for the Korean Peninsula and the Search for a Path to Reunification.”

The conference featured a Chinese speaker, a Japanese speaker, the Vice Minister of the Ministry of Unification, and a variety of other Korean experts. I was struck by the concrete discussion and the confidence that the experts exuded. Over the last few years, most people have been rather diffident about reunification and its prospects. But these participants clearly feel a sea change.
