KEI often hosts government delegations from Asia. KEI’s reputation for being one of the preeminent research institutes promoting U.S.-Korea relations makes it a main stop for foreign government officials visiting Washington, DC.
KEI sponsors several programs with Korean officials in Washington, DC for meetings and exchanges with their U.S. counterparts and private sector respresentatives. For example, KEI annually hosts a delegation from South Korea's National Assembly for an extensive series of discussions on U.S. policy making and Northeast Asia. In addition, KEI organizes the annual Opinion Leaders Seminar (OLS) to bring together leading opinion-makers from Korea and the U.S. for a closed-door, non-attribution discussion about the U.S.-Korea alliance.
KEI’s prominence in the community, active programming, and its convenient location in downtown Washington, DC all help make it a regular stop for senior government delegations.
