Dr. Norbert Eschborn, representative to Korea of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, will host a conference "Maritime Security: Challlenges and Opportunities in 2012" at Orchid Room of Seoul's Shilla Hotel in Jangchung-dong on April 4 (Wednesday), 2012.

This conference aims at presenting and debating Asian and European perspectives on current issues of maritime security in Asia-Pacific and other regions.

The Sea Lanes of Communication (SLOC) Study Group Korea/Institute of East & West Studies at Yonsei University and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung cordially invite anybody interested to participate in this experts' meeting on a topic crucial for the future development of the Republic of Korea and its regional neighbours.

The conference will be co-hosted by the Sea Lanes of Communication (SLOC) Study Group Korea/Institute of East & West Studies at Yonsei University.

Opening remarks will be deliveted by both Dr. Norbert Eschborn, representative to Korea of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and Dr. Paik Jin-Hyun, chairman of SLOC Study Group-Korea.

Congratulatory speech will be made by German ambassador to Seoul, Dr. Hans-Ulrich Seidt.

The Asia-Pacific region accounts for nearly 50 percent of the world's trade, most of which is transported over sea.

Therefore, maritime security is a priority. However, shipping and seaborne trade are threatened by various terrorist and criminal activities at sea.

Current weaknesses with providing the necessary security include, among others, lack of maritime awareness, ineffective arrangements for maritime jurisdiction and enforcement, and the lack of capacity of many regional economies to implement new standards regarding ship, cargo, and port security.

Furthermore, the development of some regional naval powers is reason for concern for others as implications on regional security cannot be ruled out with possible new hegemony on the horizon.
