- The Korean government is pursuing to bring about a great transformation through the Korean version of New Deal (or K-New Deal) in preparation for the Post-COVID-19 era. The K-New Deal can be defined as a ‘Deal’ made between the government and the Korean people to create a ‘New’ economy and a ‘New’ society. It is also a strategy to overcome crisis including the worst economic recession and reshape Korea to become a more inclusive nation where people do not despair due to the imparity. Ultimately, through the New Deal strategies, Korea intends to grow to be an exemplary, leading country that is safe and resilient. The post-COVID-19 era requires Korea and the world to give up blockade policies or ‘our country first’ strategies and embrace inclusive multilateralism to maintain real stability and peace. Accordingly, it is ever more important to achieve economic growth and social stability through peace and develop a detailed peace process on the Korean Peninsula. Responding to what the new era requires from us, the plenary session will explore the meaning and the value of food in keeping and creating peace and present efforts by the UN World Food Programme and its expectation from Korea as it calls for joint participation of countries around the world. In addition, listening to insightful views of the two Nobel Laureates on establishing common peace through social business and sports, participants will identify the role that Korea should play in the international stage.
