[2-C] Beyond the Communication Barriers - 808 Commonly Used Chinese Characters in China, Japan and the ROK|한중일 소통장벽 극복 프로그램-한중일 공동상용 808한자


Language is the fundamental basis for mutual understanding. Smooth, intimate communication is instrumental for uniting minds and working together. How should China, Japan and the ROK communicate for their close cooperation? Northeast Asia Trilateral Forum(NATF) composed of the three countries’ opinion leaders in the fields of politics, economy, culture and academia, released the chart of 808 Commonly Used Chinese Characters. It has found the clue for facilitating communication through the common cultural asset.
The session aims to discuss the significance and application of the 808 characters under the broad context of East Asian cultural commonality, and the communication and cooperation among the three countries. Can linguistic commonality enhance the communication among the three?

소통의 기본 요소는 언어입니다. 말이 통해야 뜻을 모으고, 함께 일을 도모할 수 있습니다. 긴밀한 협력을 모색하고 있는 한중일은 어떻게 소통해야 할까요? 한중일 정치, 경제, 문화, 학술계 오피니언 리더로 구성된 ‘한중일 30인회(Northeast Asia Trilateral Forum, NATF)’는 한중일 공동상용 808 한자표를 공표했습니다.
세 나라의 상징적인 공통문화인 한자에서 소통의 실마리를 찾은 것입니다. 이 세션에서는 공동상용한자가 갖는 의미와 활용방안, 동아시아의 문화적 공통성, 한중일 3국의 소통과 협력에 대해 논의하고자 합니다. 언어적 공통점은 과연 소통을 증진시킬 수 있을까요?
