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
