It is a great honor and pleasure for me to congratulate the opening of Asia Economic Community Forum here in Incheon. As you may know, the city of Incheon is characterized by a number of unique features that may contribute to the philosophy of AECF.
First, demography wise, Incheon is a city of increasing number of population in Korea. Among many cities in Korea, Incheon is one of two cities with increasing population in recent years, which has been epitomized by the 3,000,000 population.
Second, geography wise, Incheon is a hub of East Asia with the 3 major cities in East Asia in equal distance. The 3 major cities are Beijing, Shanghai and Tokyo, which are within 2 hours’ reach by airline. One can leave Incheon at 8 in the morning, have a business meeting and a leisurely lunch in any of these 3 major cities, and return back to Incheon, and have family dinner at home.
Third, economy wise, Incheon is a city of burgeoning economy. Incheon’s economy is prospering, thanks to the booming logistics industry with the convergence of 3 transportation modes, namely air transportation represented by Incheon International Airport, sea transportation represented by Port of Incheon, and overland transportation represented by KTX starting at Incheon Railway Station.
As a constituent of Incheon National University, I will do my best to assist AECF to realize our common dream of making Asia economically prosperous and politically peaceful region that 7 billion global citizens wish to live in. Thank you all.
