Information
‘….agreed to transform the demilitarized zone into a peace zone in a genuine sense’ (April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration). It is agreed in the Panmunjom Declaration of 2018 that the DMZ will be made as a peace zone that can help secure peace and promote prosperity and development. Against this backdrop, the session will introduce the current status and requirements of transforming the DMZ into a peace zone and touch upon possible measures to achieve such goals with the Goseong DMZ peace zone at the center of the discussion. The session will also propose developing a joint tourist zone in ‘Goseong Peace City,’ Gangwon Province as an action plan of establishing the Goseong DMZ peace zone. Participants will look into specific development examples to discuss possible measures and ultimately present realistic directions and policies for the Goseong DMZ peace city. The development examples will include Tumen River Square in Tumen, Yanbian Autonomous Prefecture, China; Onsong Island, Liangshui, Tumen, Yanbian Autonomous Prefecture, China; Tumen River Delta International Tourism Cooperation Zone, Hunchun, China. The session is expected to offer opportunities to explore ways to have South Korea and North Korea to work together in pursuing peace in the East Asia.
