World Leaders Messages
H.E. Won Hee-ryong
Our discussions are held against a backdrop of tensions and grievances that if left unchecked can have negative consequences for the prosperity of our region. As we know from our recent past, for a new Asia to emerge, we need peaceful dialogue with in the Korean peninsula, as well as with China, Japan and all of Southeast Asia together.
H.E. Moon Tae-young
Over the last few decades, the international community has witnessed unprecedented economic growth among East Asian countries, so that Asia has been entitled the world’s “growth engine.”Paradoxically, despite growing economic interdependence, East Asia has been facing rising political and security tensions provoked by underlying historical and territorial issues. If current challenges are left unaddressed, prospects for Asia’s future will remain uncertain. Now is the time for us to envision a “New Asia” and work towards a common goal ? that is, trust-based, collaborative, and harmonious regional cooperation.

H.E. Yun Byung-se, Foreign Minister of the R.O.K
For Korea, we are in favor of better ties between Beijing and Tokyo. This past March, I hosted the Korea-Japan-China trilateral Foreign Ministers’ meeting in Seoul, resuscitating the trilateral talks, which had been in hibernation for three years. Not only Japan and China, but also the U.S. publicly welcomed Korea’s role in hosting the meeting. As agreed at that meeting, Korea is committed to holding a trilateral summit at the earliest convenient time. And hopefully, like in 2010, the trilateral summit meeting could be held again in Jeju, an island symbolizing peace and reconciliation.
H.E. Li Xiaolin
The Jeju Forum 2015 is not only a continuation of previous forums, but also a new beginning towards shared opportunities, challenges and prosperity among Asian countries.
H.E. Joe Clark
Middle powers matter more today than we once did, because the tensions between dominant powers can lead them to narrow their focus, and often, therefore, to limit their capacity to lead or stimulate change. Middle powers, by contrast, often have much more flexibility in opening new dialogues, reaching across existing boundaries, and encouraging the skeptical or the constrained to explore new options.
