A message from Kwang Kim,
Country Representative

Korea emerged as a global leader with much to contribute in addressing
the pressing problems confronting the international community.
Our increasing focus in partnerships also requires humility and readiness
to listen. The Asia Foundation, together with our Korean friends and
global partners, invite you to join in our next chapter in Korean and
Asian history. [Learn More]


North Korean Entrepreneurs in South Korea

The Asia Foundation is launching a ground-breaking report on North Korean refugee entrepreneurs in South Korea. This captures the voices of 131 entrepreneurs portraying their challenges while pointing to a more optimistic and hopeful vision of the North Korean refugees living in South Korea. In the foreword, Dr. Andrei Lankov writes: “The growing North Korean refugee community in the South can be seen as a testing ground which can give us some foresight and warning about what is likely happening in North Korea now, and what is probably going to happen there in the future. Thus, this research and its findings are extremely important for everyone who cares about North Korea and I highly recommend it for everyone to read carefully.” Please find the attached PDF to see the report.
