During 2011-12, I had an incredibly active time as the Director for International Relations at the Center for Free Enterprise in South Korea. The most significant thing is that the organization went from unranked to the #106 ranked think tank in the world. Okay, for those only interested in the top 20, that may not sound great, but to go from unranked (top 150) to #106 out of 6,603 in the world?
That’s damn good!
Back then I wasn’t discussing North Korea at all–I was writing about and discussing economics and politics. My favorite activity was organizing events bringing speakers from around the world. Yesterday I stopped by to check out the new office. CFE president Hyun Jinkwon gave me a tour and update about what CFE has been doing.
