The one-day event will be organized in two sessions, with the first one titled “The Korean Peninsula Peace Process and Peace Economy” and the second session focusing on “New Economic Initiative on the Korean Peninsula and Cooperation with the International Community.”

The ministry said it plans to regularize the forum in order to seek ways to cooperate with the international community for the pursuit of economic prosperity as a crucial part in the process of advancing inter-Korean relations for the peace regime and complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
