ECON | TCS Board Members visited the Korea Institute of International Economic Policy of the ROK – 2017.11.23

On November 23, 2017, the TCS board members met Mr. HYUN Jung Taik, President of the Korea Institute of International Economic Policy. 

At the meeting, Mr. HYUN emphasized the importance of continuous research cooperation at track II level in order to stimulate the economic interrelation and to cultivate potential economic cooperation among the three countries, despite the political difficulty. 

TCS Secretary-General Mr. LEE Jong-heon expressed his appreciation for the KIEP to support the TCS’s projects. He also explained that the TCS not only upgrades the existing trilateral mechanism by supporting relevant governmental meetings but also facilitates and explores non-governmental cooperation such as track II trilateral economic cooperation.
