The Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity is holding its 10th international conference this year from May 20 to 22 at the Haevichi Hotel and Resort in Seogwipo.

The main theme is “Towards a New Asia of Trust and Harmony.”

It is hosted by Jeju Special Self-Governing Province, the International Peace Foundation, the East Asia Foundation, and the JoongAng Daily. It is sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, and the JDC, among other organizations.

The Forum, which first launched in 2001 as a biannual regional meeting on peaceful cooperation and common prosperity seeks international cooperation based on the sharing creative ideas. The premise is that Jeju is an excellent place to be a regular venue for just such a dialogue.

This year organizers expect 3,500 people from 60 countries to discuss practical measures for peace, mutual cooperation and growth in the region.
