The Korea-Japan Cultural Exchange Council held the seventh Korea-China-Japan cultural exchange forum, supported by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, for three days starting on September 20 at Hotel Hyundai in Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do (North Gyeongsang Province).

Experts, scholars, and influential figures in the culture and arts sectors of the three countries have gathered to attend the annual forum which has been held since 2005 to review the outcome of trilateral cultural exchanges and discuss ways to enhance cultural exchanges among the three countries.

The 7th trilateral cultural exchange forum was held in Gyeongju from Sep. 20 to 22.

At this year’s forum, the attendees had in-depth discussions on approaches to building an East Asian cultural community and the issue of developing an international cultural exchange program.

The attendees visited some of the well-known tourist attractions in Gyeongju and neighboring cities, including Bulguksa Temple, Haeinsa Temple, Cheonmachong (Tomb of the Heavenly Horse in Korean), and Gyeongju World Culture Expo where they performed a special mask dance performance of the three countries.

Next, the Korea-China-Japan women’s cultural exchange forum and related events will be held at Gyeongju Commodore Hotel from September 25 to 27. This forum is expected to be attended by 300 guests, including the mayor of Gyeongju City and the governor of North Gyeongsang Province, as well as foreign envoys from within Korea.
