Event: Ambassadors Roundtables

Ambassadors Roundtable with the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea

The complex U.S.-South Korea relationship encompasses multiple vital American national interests. The vexatious nuclear dance with North Korea, bilateral trade and investment relations, the future of the U.S. military engagement on the Peninsula, and the expansion of the PRC’s influence throughout East Asia are among the matters of greatest concern in both countries.

To discuss these issues, H.E. Ambassador Cho Yoon-je of the Republic of Korea will be the Council’s guest for our first Ambassadors’ Roundtable of the new 2018-2019 season on Thursday, October 25 at the Army & Navy Club on Farragut Square.

Ambassador Cho, who obtained an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Economics at Stanford University (1984), is a distinguished economist and university educator. He was a key foreign policy advisor to President Moon Jae-in during his successful 2017 election campaign. His experience in public service is extensive, including Special Envoy to the European Union and Germany (2017), Ambassador to the United Kingdom (2005-2008), Economic Advisor to President Roh Moo-Hyundai (2003-2005), and in senior capacities at the World Bank and the IMF. He has taught courses in finance and economics at Sogang University’s Graduate School of International Studies and at Georgetown University.

Please join us in welcoming Ambassador Cho at noon on October 25 at the Army & Navy Club in Farragut Square in the John Paul Jones/Iwo Jima Rooms. The members’ price for this event is $69.
