Emanuel speaks about cooperation in East Asia for “Young Ambassadors”

August 6, 2014 

 

Emanuel led a discussion at the Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat (for cooperation between China, Japan and Korea) on Wednesday, August 6 (2014) on the topic of regional cooperation in East Asia. The discussion involved the members of this year’s Young Ambassador Program. Each year, a group of fifteen outstanding youth from China, Japan and Korea with a deep commitment to improving relations between the nations and promoting meaningful integration are selected for a four day program of activities and lectures by the Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat. As the only organization run jointly by the governments of China, Japan and Korea, the Secretariat plays a critical role in facilitating greater understanding and cooperation.

Emanuel talked about the challenges of globalization and its causes, focusing on the impact of technology on globalization and addressing directly the completely unprecedented challenges of climate change and digitization that we face. He discussed with the students the effectiveness of current mechanisms for international cooperation in East Asia. The students, in turn, made concrete proposals for new approaches to the promotion of substantial cooperation and offered their opinions of existing institutions.

The seminar was also an opportunity to introduce Emanuel’s new book “Searching for Truth on Both Sides of the Ocean” (跨海求真),a book that raises a variety of mechanisms for promoting international cooperation in East Asia.
