Legislative Outreach

 

As part of its mission, the Korea Economic Institute (KEI) conducts outreach to members of the U.S. Congress and Korean National Assembly to help elected officials in both countries gain a greater understanding of U.S.-Korea relations.

Outreach to Capitol Hill

KEI hosts a series of programs designed to help expand the knowledge of elected officials and Congressional staff about the U.S.-Korea relationship.  These include arranging private briefings for Congressional staff with U.S. and Korean experts on North Korea, the U.S. Korea alliance, and the expanding economic relationship between the two nations. In addition, KEI sponsors public events on Capitol Hill with U.S. government officials, visiting Korean officials, and other experts on a wide range of topics related to the U.S.-Korea alliance.

National Assembly Visit

KEI annually hosts a delegation from Korea’s National Assembly for a series of meetings designed to help elected officials in Korea gain a better understanding of how Washington works and U.S. policy makers view the alliance. The meetings are designed to help Korean policy makers gain a better understanding of the concerns and interests of the United States towards the alliance and North Korea.
