HSF Korea has strived to pursue a peaceful unification process on the Korean Peninsula and active communication with North Korea. With this in mind, the members of HSF Korea wrote relevant articles and journals on the topics of International Forest Cooperation, NGO Activities, and German unification.
In the 4th Quarter (No.86) of KORUM published by the Korean-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KGCCI), Dr. Bernhard Seliger, representative of HSF Korea, contributed an article about North Korea’s current economy and political stance regarding international sanctions, COVID-19, and natural disasters.
HSF Korea carries out numerous activities every year, including research projects and various events. To keep its partners and those interested in the foundation's work up to date, HSF Korea publishes an annual brochure summarizing all of previous year's activities in the field of environmental protection and cooperation on the Korean peninsula. The brochure for 2020 has been published recently.
This year, Korea marked 75 years of division and 70 years since the Korean war, while Germany celebrates its 30-year anniversary of reunification. On December 18, the first 2020 German-Korean Unification Forum meeting was held to honor the 30th anniversary of German unification and build a foundation for peaceful Korean unification.
The Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) Korea office wishes everyone merry Christmas and happy holidays. We thank our supporters and those engaged in our work this year.
