On June 28, the NEAR Secretariat hosted an online meeting inviting the NEAR Honorary Ambassadors from Chinese member regional governments.

The event was attended by six Honorary Ambassadors from five different Chinese NEAR members including Hunan Province, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Shandong Province, Shanxi Province and Shaanxi Province. NEAR Secretary-General Kim Ok-chae, experts on different NEAR member countries, and the Chinese government official seconded to the NEAR Secretariat participated in the meeting and discussed ideas on how to revitalize the promotion of NEAR.




Mr. Kim stated that NEAR pursues the role of "UN of Northeast Asia" to overcome the so-called Asian Paradox in the region by taking the lead in exchange between local governments in northeast Asia.

Moreover, Mr. Kim also said that he would look forward to inviting the NEAR Ambassadors to the NEAR Secretariat and discussing in-depth how to promote NEAR when active offline exchange resumes between Korea and China. 



The NEAR Honorary Ambassadors to China introduced the organizations they work for and proposed diverse international activities and ways of cooperation with NEAR through the use of SNS. Additionally, they replied that they would actively support the development of NEAR accordingly.

The NEAR Secretariat first appointed local opinion leaders as NEAR Honorary Ambassadors in 2020. Currently, there are nine working honorary ambassadors from five NEAR Chinese members: Hunan Province, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, Shandong Province, Shanxi Province and Shaanxi Province.
