The Tumen Triangle region—where North Korea, China and Russia meet—is, in many ways, the story of regional integration being held back by the political concerns of Pyongyang, Beijing and Moscow. Andray Abrahamian, Director of Research at Choson Exchange will present USKI’s latest special report which examines historical legacies, contemporary relations and shifting strategic priorities between the three countries and how they influence trade and investment in the region.
Andray Abrahamian is the Director of Research for Choson Exchange, a non-profit specializing in training for North Koreans in business, economic policy and law. He is an Honorary Fellow at Macquarie University and was a CSIS non-resident Kelly Fellow. Andray has a PhD from the University of Ulsan, in which he examined media discourse and our understanding of North Korea and an M.A. from the University of Sussex, which focused on US-Korea relations.
