Annual Canada-Korea Forum: Innovation and the New Canada-Korea Relationship

Thursday, September 17, 2015 12:00 AM

The Canada-Korea Forum meets annually to discuss the state of relations between Canada and Korea, to challenge the status quo, and to provide insights and forward-looking advice to governments, businesses and others involved in the relationship.  It is made up of a small group of senior level Koreans and Canadians largely drawn from business, academic institutions, think tanks, and politics, as well as former government officials. 

The overarching theme for the Forum this year will be "Innovation and the New Canada-Korea Relationship". Against the background of the new chapter in relations inaugurated by the Canada Korea FTA in January, 2015, the Forum will look at how innovations can be brought into play across the board, from the content and conduct of our business and economic relationships, to the field security and cooperation on global issues, to engaging youth and the leaders of tomorrow.
