2021 New Ambassadors Welcome Dinner
May 31, 2021 – As a part of our Leo Gala Series to promote Korean culture and celebrate its beauty with envoys of South Korea's foreign diplomatic community, Asia Society Korea held its New Ambassadors Welcome Dinner at the Lotte Hotel Seoul on May 31, 2021. The event was co-hosted by the Korea Center's Chairman Dong-Bin Shin and board member Young Joon YJ Kim, introducing the seven new ambassadors who have been in Korea since October 2020 as well as fifteen female ambassadors in the country.
Our deepest gratitude to our generous friends, sponsors, and extraordinary members of the diplomatic community who support us in so many ways throughout the year. Each year, we take the annual welcome dinner to imbue and remind ourselves of one overriding responsibility: to safeguard the legacy we have received from our predecessors and hand it enriched to the next. As we aspire to build bridges between Asia and the rest of the world, we set our sights on the space we have long needed to cross disciplines and connect communities. In that spirit, we truly look forward to working closely with the new arrivals in promoting a deeper understanding of Asia around the world.
