A dinner and discussion on
An Assessment of the ROK National Assembly Elections
Professor Hyung Kook Kim
and Mr. Chul-Min Lee
Moderated by Donald P. Gregg

The National Assembly Elections in South Korea scheduled for april 15 will 
be a major benchmark in Korea's recent history. The outcome of the 
elections is likely to have a significant impact on a wide range of 
critical issues, including the Kim Dae-jung administration's ongoing 
economic reforms and major foreign policy initiatives such as the Sunshine 
Policy toward North Korea.

This meeting will provide a unique opportunity to gain an informed 
perspective on the outcome of the elections from two seasoned observers of 
the political scene in Korea: Prof. Hyung Kook Kim, Director of the Asian 
Studies Program, American University; and Mr. Chul-Min Lee, New York Bureau 
Chief, The Chosun Daily. In his role as moderator, Amb. Donald P. Gregg, 
Chairman, The Korea Society, will bring additional expertise to what 
promises to be a very interesting and timely discussion of developments 
that are vital to future developments on the Korean peninsula.
