Geoffrey See, Founder of Choson Exchange and North Korea observer
An Insider’s View of North Korea – and What To Expect When Trump Meets Kim
Insights from Geoffrey See, Founder of Choson Exchange and a North Korean Incubator
With political commentary from Shawn Ho, Associate Research Fellow at ISIS
The historic meeting between President Trump and Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un is now known to be taking place in Singapore on June 12th and will be watched all over the world. The event has been compared to the remarkable meeting between Reagan and Gorbachev in 1986, where the US and Russia worked their way towards a compromise on nuclear weapons. The two leaders meeting in June couldn’t be more different in character – and much about the Hermit Kingdom remains unknown.
We are pleased to have a fireside chat with Geoffrey See - a remarkable Singaporean who started an education programme in 2007 to create educational exchanges with North Koreans and subsequently kickstarted an incubator and co-working space there. Fast-forward to today, Geoffrey’s efforts seem ahead of his time. Over the past decade, Geoffrey has also accumulated remarkable insight on the people of North Korea and been an important bridge between their government institutions and the world at large.
