As an invited official delegate, the mayor is entitled to a free admission pass to the conference. Interested parties without an official invitation would have to pay the $1,000 registration fee.
This 5-hour 4th Asia Leadership Forum runs in conjunction with the Asian Leadership Conference (ALC) 2021, with the theme, “World After COVID: Rebuilding Trust and Cooperation.”
Organized by Chosun Media, ALC brings together world-leading thinkers, decision-makers, and experts to discuss practical cases, lessons, and insights they have drawn from the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
The ALC is South Korea’s premier international conference that provides a platform for global leaders to convene and offer possible solutions to Asia’s pressing issues.
This conference will focus on the importance of a leader’s ability to navigate change and disruption, as made abundantly clear by the ongoing global pandemic.
This year’s ALC will feature over 230 global leaders, including former heads of state, heads of corporations, and thought leaders./WDJ
