LSE SU Korea Future Forum 2016 – Registration closing soon!


It is our pleasure to invite you to apply to the London School of
Economics SU Korea Future Forum 2016 – the largest student-run forum in
the world discussing social, political and economic matters of the
Korean peninsula.

The 2016 forum will be held under the topic of “Korea-EU FTA: After 5
Years of EU’s First Trade Deal with an Asian Country, Korea”. The forum
includes keynotes, panel discussions and debates about the economic
impact of the KOR-EU FTA, recently drafted Trans-Pacific Partnership
(TPP), South Korea’s Multi-Trace FTA Strategy, analysis of the effect of
trade on the automobile and law industry and many more. With the
Korea-EU FTA reaching its fifth anniversary this year, and EU’s plan to
soon expand trade relations to other Asian countries, the topic is more
relevant than ever.

We will be holding the LSE KFF at the LSE, London, on the 6th of
February 2016 in conjunction with our partners LSE Annual Fund, Doosan
Yonkang Foundation, Export-Import Bank of Korea, Embassy of the Republic
