The Economic Freedom Network (EFN) Asia will be participating in the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity 2013 Conference this coming May 29-31, 2013, to be held at Haevichi Hotel and Resort Jeju, S. Korea. I think this will be the first time that the network will join this big international conference held yearly in the southern island of Jeju. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty (FNF) Korea Office is working with the EFN Asia Secretariat in Bangkok in the network's participation.
This forum was invented in 2001 meant for a regional dialogue to promote peace and prosperity in Asia, the Korean Peninsula in particular. Then it became successful in attracting more regional and international participants, it later became a big international conference held every two years, then made an annual event since 2011.
Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity is one of the Asia’s major international comprehensive forums where political, business, cultural and academic leaders gather together in Jeju, ‘Island of World Peace’ to exchange opinions and to discuss the ideas for the multilateral cooperation for common peace and prosperity in the region.
Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity 2013 will be held from 29 to 31 May 2013 under the theme of "New Waves in Asia" hosted by Jeju Special Self-Governing Province with International Peace Foundation, East Asia Foundation and The JoongAng Ilbo.
