In a 2015 joint statement the United States and Korea highlighted the importance of working together on “New Frontiers of Cooperation,” a group of twenty-first centuryissues representing convergent priorities and capabilities in science, technology, innovation, and economic development. Specifically, these areas are global health, energy and climate change, environment and sustainability, cyber security, space, and science and technology. Cooperation on these issues builds a strong framework for innovative local business development, allows for information sharing on critical new security threats, and enhances opportunities for a broad range of science cooperation through engaging with the relevant communities in the U.S. and Korea. At a time of political transition and uncertainty in both countries, working together on these issues offers opportunities for continuity and a forward-looking agenda for economic engagement to expand.
Please join KEI and Sean Connell, an expert on U.S.-Korea business ties, for a discussion of how collaborating with Korea on these areas have furthered U.S. security and economic interests as well as potential avenues to advance cooperation.
