Global Leader Award
a member of the ruling Saenuri Party's National Assembly
Jeong Mong-joon, born in Busan in 1951, is well-known for his diverse and numerous positions and roles. After graduating from Seoul National University, serving as a lieutenant in the Army, and studying at the MIT Graduate School in the United States, Rep. Jung is a leader who is working hard in various fields such as politics, economy, society, and culture. have. Rep. Chung served as president and chairman of Hyundai Heavy Industries and was at the center of Korea's economic development. He is the most elected member of the National Assembly with a record of seven terms from 1988 to 2013, and was also the highest-ranking member of the Grand National Party representative in 2009. In addition, as the president of the University of Ulsan and the Asan Nanum Foundation, he has contributed to the improvement of national competitiveness by nurturing talent and nurturing global leaders. I have been working hard for the sake of it.
Rep. Jeong's role in hosting the 2002 Korea-Japan World Cup and changing the status of Korean football cannot be left out. At that time, Rep. Chung spent 391 days traveling the globe 38 times for two years and five months to host the World Cup, eventually leading to the co-host of the World Cup. Despite the pessimism of most people at the time, the figure of Rep. Jeong, who dedicated and made efforts with hope, sets an example for him as a leader. During the World Cup, which was a festival for the whole nation, our culture grew by attracting the world's attention with Korea's cheering culture as a foothold, and in a broad sense, it can be seen that this has led to the current Korean Wave. He has led the rapid development of Korean culture and soccer, and has been receiving attention as a representative reformer within FIFA while serving as FIFA Vice President for 17 years. Rep. Jeong, who seeks new hopes and paths and perseveres in pioneering new paths, is truly a leader worthy of respect.
In recent years he has voiced concerns and sincere criticism against political parties and the newly launched government. He must come up with a solution to the failure of the government organization law reform bill with the determination that the party leadership will resign. You can feel the solid side of Rep. Jeong, who values responsibility and determination in saying that. Also, the party should not look at the Blue House without dynamism.', 'The leadership must persuade the president as well as the opposition party.' He emphasized the role of the National Assembly and political parties, which form the basis of political democracy, through his direct and sharp points of view.
Rep. Jung's beliefs and actions, who say, 'I will always be with you on the journey to make Korea happy', are consistent with the Global Leaders Forum's belief that a true welfare state can only be realized if the hope that Korea can become the center of the world comes alive. . I salute Rep. Jeong, who is taking the lead in making a global Korea along with the development of politics, economy, society and culture in Korea.

Former Minister Kim Jong-hoon, who was born in Daegu in 1952, enjoyed working at Yonsei University in 1975 and passed the 8th foreign service examination in 1974, and then walked the path of a diplomat. Chairman Kim served as a Counselor in Canada in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, an officer in charge of protocol at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, a counselor in the United States, and a protocol examiner at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 2006, he was selected as the head of trade negotiations in recognition of his contribution to successfully negotiating the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA) as the chief representative of the Korea-US Free Trade Agreement (FTA). He currently chairs the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Senior Management Meeting (SOM).
Chairman Kim, who has been in charge of various activities and positions at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for a long time and concluded the Korea-US FTA, is enough to be called a leader in Korean diplomatic negotiations. In particular, trade expansion is essential for Korea, which has achieved compressed growth based on an export-oriented economic structure, for a new growth engine. cannot be overlooked
Chairman Kim's nickname is 'Gladiator'. Wendy Cutler, the representative of the US side, said, 'I had to do something difficult like trade negotiations because of what I did in my past life. In the process, he not only led a government delegation with 250 participants from 27 ministries without confusion, but also negotiated with a clear and clear attitude without wavering, despite severe domestic opposition through the two governments. It is well known that he clearly digs into the core with direct speech rather than expression.
The core of the leadership of the masters of negotiation in Korea is not in 'One-upmanship' but in 'Relationship'. Chairman Kim said, “Until now, education had focused on One-upmarship, that is, having an upper hand over others, but now is the time to focus on an attitude that recognizes and accepts diversity.” The wisdom of acknowledging and respecting differences through listening and at the same time reaching an agreement is one of the important qualifications of a global leader.
"You have no freedom to enjoy freedom when you are in a responsible position. You can read the difficulties of the days when you put the interests of the whole people first and sacrificed your own liberty and devoted yourself to the difficulties of the days of dedication. Sallnily! I could feel Chairman Kim longing for freedom in the blue sky.
At a rally against the Korea-US FTA, he was criticized for being a racist. Opposition parties are still calling for the abolition of the FTA on the grounds of the Investor State Litigation System (ISD).
“If the people who oppose me can get rid of the controversy and end the controversy, you can step on me.
"FTA is not necessarily a good thing, but if it is the way we should go in the future, it is desirable for our future to reach the goal before others. Korea's role in Kwon will grow even bigger." This is in line with the purpose of the Global Leaders Forum that a true welfare state can only be realized if the hope that Korea can become the center of the world is revived. As a public official, I send all the people's hearts and applause to Chairman Kim, who has run from the forefront so that the Republic of Korea can become the center of the world.
