Despite coordinated efforts for the last two decades, the Great Tumen Initiative (GTI) has been criticized for its lackluster achievements. Facing this type of criticism, GTI has attracted new attention because of the dynamic transitions in East Asia such as the rise of China, expectations for regime change in North Korea, the possibility of
multilateral cooperation in East Asia, and peaceful alternatives for East Asian issues. This session invites specialists from relevant parties, GTI delegates, and specialists from the United States and Japan to evaluate the achievement of the GTI and to discuss the future strategy for multilateral cooperation.
- International cooperation for GTI.
- Cooperation among Korea-China-Japan-Russia for the regional
development in East Asia.
- Development strategy for the backward boarder areas in China and
Russia.
- GTI and North Korea’s Reform and Liberalization

동아시아 다자협력의 새로운 시도로 평가받는 두만강 개발계획은 지난 20년간의 노력에도 불구하고 성과가 미흡하다는 비판을 받아왔습니다. 이러한 이견에도 불구하고 최근 중국의 부상, 북한체제의 변화가능성, 동아시아 다자협력에 대한 기대, 동아시아 문제에 대한 평화적 대안의 모색이라는 국제환경의 변화 속에 두만강개발계획 (GTI: Great Tumen Initiative)는 주변국으로부터 새로운 주목을 받고 있습니다. 동아시아의 다자협력의 시도라는 점에서 당사국과 GTI 담당자 그리고 미국과 일본의 전문가들이 모여서 두만강을 중심으로 한 다자협력을 위한 당사국의 노력에 대한 평가와 함께 향후 발전방안에 대해서 논의 하고자 합니다.
- 두만강 개발을 위한 국제협력
- 동북아 지역 발전을 위한 한ㆍ중ㆍ일ㆍ러의 협력
- 중국, 러시아 등의 변방 낙후지역 개발
- 북한의 개혁ㆍ개방과 연계
