President Jae-Young Lee of KIEP and Deputy Minister Kang-hyeon Yun shared their views on external uncertainties facing the Korean economy and agreed to work together to seek ways to surmount the difficulties through close cooperation.
Deputy Minister Kang-hyeon Yun reviewed Korea’s economic achievements amid mounting uncertainties in the global economy, including trade disputes between the U.S. and China, Japan’s trade restrictions against Korea, Brexit extension, the situation in Hong Kong and Israel-Iran conflict, and explained the direction of Korea’s foreign policy in the future. In particular, he predicted that tensions in the Middle East will not have a great impact on the Korean economy. Participants in the meeting agreed on the need to come up with ways to promote economic cooperation with Iran, while complying with the U.S. sanctions against Iran.
