Please join us for a special program on "Korea Matters for Hawaiʻi/Hawaiʻi Matters for Korea” with a distinguished panel of speakers who will provide an update and perspective on the longstanding relationships between Korea and Hawaiʻi and Korea and the United States. Hawaiʻi and Korea have had close ties since 1903 when the first Koreans arrived in Hawaiʻi bringing with them their rich cultural traditions. This year also marks the 70th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice Agreement and the Mutual Defense Treaty deepening the bonds between the United States and the Republic of Korea. Leading up to the May 3 program will be a summit between US President Joe Biden and President Yoon Sik Yeol of Korea on April 26 in Washington, DC. In addition, on April 20, East-West Center in Washington, in partnership with the Korean Economic Institute and the Chey Institute for Advanced Studies, will launch a new edition of Korea Matters for America/America Matters for Korea at the US Congressional Visitors Center. This event is sponsored by the Center for Korean Studies, the East-West Center, and the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Honolulu.
