IFTC Greetings

We welcome you to join us in this great cause. “..if the three countries can successfully buid up the momentum of cooperation, then paradigm shift will be possible from mistrust and confrontation to trust and cooperation”

The Trilateral Cooperation Secretariat was established in September 2011, with the grand vision to promote peace and prosperity in Northeast Asia, with special attentions and supports from the governments of the Republic of Korea, Japan and China. Since its establishment, the TCS has been fostering the cooperative relations and accumulating history of the trilateral cooperation in a more systematic manner. Over the past six years, the TCS has made remarkable progress in advancing the sustainable development of the trilateral cooperation in various areas. Entering the seventh year, the TCS will shoulder more important responsibility to upgrade the level of trilateral cooperation and to raise wider public awareness.

As the fourth Secretary-General, I hope the role of TCS can be further strengthened in the coming years as a stabilizer and a thruster of trilateral cooperation. I will do my best to fulfill my duty, and TCS is ready to cooperate with friends who share the same vision. We welcome you to join us in this great cause. I believe with the joint efforts of the three countries and the three people, the trilateral cooperation will create a momentum for the better future of the region and the whole world.

By Secretary-General Lee Jong-heon
