FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 25, 2017 --

On Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 6:15 pm – 7:15 pm at the Harvard Club in New York City, Earl Carr, Managing Director at Momentum Advisors who spearheads the firm’s international business development initiatives, was joined by a distinctive panel of experts from academia, the diplomatic community, and the private sector to discuss the highly complex yet important issues arising from the latest development of the challenges on the Korean Peninsula.

The timely event, titled “Current Challenges in the Korean Peninsula and Prospects for Unification”, was jointly sponsored by The Foreign Policy Association and Korea Institute for National Unification. Ambassador Gheewan Kim, Consul General to New York, Republic of Korea made the opening remarks.

Earl, with extensive experience in research, consulting, and business in America and Asia and who is also an Adjunct Professor at New York University moderated a panel discussion on North Korea, China’s role, and international security.  The audience had a unique opportunity to hear different perspectives from scholars and foreign policy practitioners including Joel Wit (Senior Fellow at John Hopkins University and Columbia University), Ankit Panda (Editor of “the Diplomat”) and Robert Einhorn (Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution). “Since President Trump assumed office this year, North Korea has dominated much attention of US Asia policy-makers and occupied the center of discussion between the leaders in the US and China. To better understand these issues it will be helpful to understand China’s strategic considerations that will affect its views on the future of the Korean Peninsula.” says Earl, “For global markets and investment opportunities, different regional economies and the US probably will react differently depending on the scale of the tension and whether China and the US can weather through such tensions effectively without a negative impact on their economic and strategic interests.”
