It is our great pleasure to welcome you to this special conference themed, “Beyond Boarders: Together for another 140 years,” celebrating the 140th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and Germany. The conference is jointly co-organized by Alumninetzwerk Deutschland-Korea (ADeKo) and the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Seoul. 

Over the last three years, we have experienced unexpected ordeals, mostly owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has drastically changed our daily lifestyles and partly disrupted our personal livelihoods. The role of ADeKo could be described as “bringing together our two nations in order to strengthen the long-lasting partnerships.” I extend my appreciation to all public  …
