The Central Asia Chapter (head: Lee Jae-wan) hosted events in Almaty, Kazakhstan for 3 days from May 18 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Korean settlement.


On Day 1, May 18, the “3rd Youth Unification Quiz Contest” was hosted at the Concert Hall of the Korean Education Center in Almaty, where 80 students participated and showed off their skills.


Held on May 19 was an international academic forum at Kazakh National University on the reality of North Korean society and the role of the diaspora (Korean settlers overseas) in the process of unification; participants reflected on the history of Korean immigration and return and discussed the appropriateness of unification.


On May 20, the final day, 800 compatriots took part in the “6th Korean Festival Hoping for Peaceful Unification” held at the stadium of Kazakh National University.


This year is the 6th anniversary of the festival; it offered a colorful program starting with a congratulatory performance by the Almaty Goryeo Culture Performance Group, followed by a soccer contest, a taekwondo competition, a unification balloon-flying event, and an awarding ceremony of scholarships and writing contest awards.
