Focusing on the New Southern Policy of ROK

The New Southern Policy (NSP) introduced by Mr. Moon Jae-in of the Republic of Korea in November 2017 is a set of approaches applied by the ROK to elevate Korea’s ties with Southeast Asia and also India.

The Moon administration is trying to level up the quality of Korean cooperation with the two regions to the same level that Korea has with its traditional friends, namely United States, China, Russia, and Japan. The policy stresses the cooperation in people, prosperity, and peace.

After three years of practice, the Korean Center of Kantor Berita Politik RMOL would like to invite interested and related parties to review the various achievements of NSP, especially the Korea’s relations with ASEAN in an international webinar...
