The explosive economic growth of the past decade has redrawn the relationships and economic alliances of the world’s industrial production powerhouses.  Amidst the tumult, Korea should aim to set a course to create and sustain trust, engender constructive cooperation and establish true middle-power diplomacy in the region.  This commitment to multinational regional partnership would help ensure stability and sustain economic expansion with new opportunities for innovation and shared prosperity.


Dr. Un-Chan Chung is currently serving as the Chairman of the Korea Institute for Shared Growth. He was the Prime Minister of South Korea between 2009 and 2010. From 2002 to 2006, he served as the President of Seoul National University, where he was a professor of economics from 1978 to 2009. He has also been serving as a member of the President’s Council for the University of Tokyo since 2006.
