Hosted by the Hudson Institute.
“Hudson Institute will host Cho Yoon-je, the Republic of Korea’s Ambassador to the United States, for a discussion about the current state of U.S.-South Korean relations. The conversation will be moderated by Walter Russell Mead, the Ravenel B. Curry III Distinguished Fellow in Strategy and Statesmanship at Hudson.
Formally established in 1882, the United States’ relationship with South Korea has grown even closer over the last decade. The free trade agreement between the two countries has markedly increased trade and investment since it came into effect in 2012 and has weathered recent disputes over automobile manufacturing, steel and aluminum. Diplomacy between the two nations is also underlined by shared national security concerns, including the goal of downgrading North Korea’s nuclear weapons program and responding to Pyongyang’s aggressive posturing.”
