Asia, Europe Young Leaders to Address Global Issues in New Millennium


Dubbed the ``Mini-Davos'' conference, the third Asia-Europe Young Leaders Symposium opened its five-day sessions in the Bokwang Phoenix Park, a famous resort area in Kangwon-do, Monday under the theme of ``Asia and Europe: Preparing for the Challenges and Opportunities of the New Millennium.''

Prime Minister Kim Jong-pil will deliver a congratulatory speech at the opening of the five-day event while key-note speeches will be made by SaKong Il, chairman of the Asia-Europe Vision Group and former Austrian deputy premier Erhard Busek.

More than a hundred young leaders from the 25 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) member countries and the European Commission are participating in the symposium which takes place at the doorsteps of a new millennium.

By bringing together young leaders from all walks of life, the symposium will offer young leaders an excellent opportunity to work together and forge a common vision of Asia-Europe cooperation for the upcoming 21st century.

The Asia-Europe Young Leaders Symposium is one of many follow-up activities of the first ASEM, which was held in Bangkok in March 1996.

At this meeting the former Chancellor of Austria and the Prime Minister of Japan proposed organizing a symposium to provide future young leaders from ASEM member countries with an opportunity to strengthen cultural ties and enhance mutual understanding.

The first Asia-Europe Young Leaders Symposium was organized by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in March of 1997. The participants discussed various aspects of Asia-Europe relations under the topic, ``In Search for New Asia-Europe Cooperation for the 21st Century.''

In May of 1998, the Austrian government hosted the second Asia-Europe Young Leaders Symposium under the theme, ``Europe and Asia : Approaches, Visions and Strategies for the Future.''

In this symposium in Korea, eight workshops will be organized to cover a wide range of issues facing the world, as well as Asia and Europe: political cooperation, security cooperation, economic cooperation, social cooperation, cultural cooperation, media cooperation, environmental cooperation and information-technology cooperation.

The participating countries from Asia(10): Brunei Darussalam, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam; from Europe(16): Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the European Commission.

In the first workshop on political cooperation, the participants will launch discussions on democracy, civil society and political transparency, now that this globalized world has encouraged a shift in governance of the world away from the states-system to a multi-layered system of rule making and order creation.

Today's political scene lacks a clear center of decision-making of the kind previously provided by the nation-state. In addition, considerable initiative in the construction of norms is now found outside public-sector bodies, namely, in market agencies and social movements.
