Going Together to the Twenty-First Century: U.S.-Korea Cooperation on Science and Technology
With this week's summit between American President Donald Trump and Korean President Moon Jae-In, it's worth looking back at one of the major positive outcomes from the previous U.S.-ROK summit – a joint statement on "New Frontiers of Cooperation," highlighting areas of science and technology for future U.S.-Korea cooperation. From cybersecurity to clean energy, then-Presidents Obama and Park agreed to push forward together on a variety of science and tech projects.
Now, a year on and two new presidents later, how have the two countries been doing on these projects? And what will science and technology cooperation look like under these new administrations? Sean Connell, Director of Business Recruitment at the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County in Washington State, shares his thoughts on this week's episode of Korean Kontext.
