Wednesday 7 November 15.00-16.30: The Future of EU-Korea Relations

The EU-Asia Centre and the KF-VUB Korea Chair invite you to a panel discussion on the Future of EU-Korea relations. The strategic partnership between the EU and Korea is strong and solid, as demonstrated by the 19 October summit between Presidents Tusk and Juncker with President Moon. But there is much more the two partners could do together, as illustrated in a new policy report by the KF-VUB Korea Chair, “EU-ROK relations: Putting the strategic partnership to work”, which identifies several areas in which cooperation could be strengthened to boost bilateral ties whilst promoting global security.

The discussion will be held on Wednesday 7 November 2018 from 15:00 to 16:30 at the Press Club, 95 Rue Froissart, Brussels.
