Approximately 60 students studying at the faculty of ChineseJapanese studies in Busan Dong-A University visited the NEAR Secretariat with their academic adviser, Won Dong-wook, on Thurs. September 19. They listened to the working status of NEAR and had an opportunity to interact with Secretary General kim Ok-chae.

 

This visit took place because the students paid attention to the unique role of NEAR as a platform of international exchange and cooperation between regional governments in Northeast Asia countries as part of their ChineseJapanese studies.



Students expressed their surprise, stating that they did not realized that there was an international organization such as NEAR which played a key role in international exchange in Pohang near Busan. They asked questions such as the reason for the Secretariat being located in Pohang and expressed their understanding in terms of NEAR’s role in exchange between regional governments and civilians which encourages interaction in spite of diplomatic conflicts among central governments such as the current friction between Japan and Korea in the area of trade.
