The Economic Freedom Network (EFN) Asia will be participating in the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity 2013 Conference this coming May 29-31, 2013, to be held at Haevichi Hotel and Resort Jeju, S. Korea. I think this will be the first time that the network will join this big international conference held yearly in the southern island of Jeju. The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Liberty (FNF) Korea Office is working with the EFN Asia Secretariat in Bangkok in the network's participation.

This forum was invented in 2001 meant for a regional dialogue to promote peace and prosperity in Asia, the Korean Peninsula in particular. Then it became successful in attracting more regional and international participants, it later became a big international conference held every two years, then made an annual event since 2011.

I was in the federal capital the entire weekend, taking advantage of the relatively empty roads to quickly criss-cross to various open houses. As usual there were boundless quantities of food, and for the second year in a row, endless chatter about the election. At one house, the same uncles were asking the same questions as last year: who will win where and by how much? The answers, too, were pretty much the same.
