you for visiting the homepage of Diplomacy.
The most definite
measure for evaluating a magazine is the readership
of the magazine. Actively going around the whole
world in the past 30 years, Diplomacy has succeeded
in securing the most influential top leaders in
political, economic and social fields as the core
I have directly met
with many world-class leaders and have vividly
delivered their thoughts and philosophies through
Diplomacy until today. On the other hand, I have
always been proud of my having played a big role
in the promotion of the warm-hearted friendly
relations between their countries and Korea as
a civilian diplomat.
Diplomacy is proud
that in the past 30 years, it has grown to be
a world-class political, economic, cultural, and
diplomatic journal- so much so that it has met
with over 250 kings, presidents, and prime ministers
of many countries. It has become a prominent journal
which displays its influences on the world stage
both in name and reality.
If you take a look
at our “Diplomacy Family”, which has been actively
supporting Diplomacy both materially and spiritually,
you should be able to come in contact with the
worldwide reputation we have accumulated. The
members of the Diplomacy Family are comprised
of over 400 persons from over 150 countries. They
include the top leaders of all spheres of life
in the world such as kings, presidents, prime
ministers, the secretary-general of the United
Nations, the chancellor of the Oxford University,
the president of the Yale University, etc. They
have been happily participating as advisors, advisory
committee members, or editorial committee members.
Hence, you will feel that you are meeting the
members of yet another United Nations (UN) organization.
Diplomacy has opened
up a completely new chapter of history in the
world of English-language journalism which is
still barren in Korea.
Going beyond the dimension
of being a simple monthly, Diplomacy has grown
as a journal that greatly contributes to world
peace and the advance of the Korean economy into
We had founded the
magazine in order to bring into relief the strong
points of the leaders of the world from all walks
of life and of each of the countries and to actively
help economic cooperation by providing accurate
information regarding the present situations of
the countries in the world. Our magazine contributes
to the national development of each of the countries,
to the settling down of peace in Korea and to
the peaceful reunification of Korea. Furthermore,
we contribute to the creation of world peace.
And, in the past 30 years, we have strived on
in order to achieve those objectives.
By pulling up the
levels of the readers to the levels of the discernment
of, and the experience of, the world leaders and
by allowing the readers to come in contact with
the latest information related to each of the
countries, Diplomacy has been a big stepping stone
for the entry into the world by Korean corporations.
Next, I will tell
you about the effects of advertising in Diplomacy.
The number of the people in the world who have
the rights to decide on policies is not that big.
Diplomacy reaches the core policymakers of many
countries in the world. It is a magazine read
by the core ministers and heads of the states
of these countries. Hence, I can tell you that
the effects of the advertisements are fully “megaton-class”.
I hope that you will
become a world-class leader and
a world-class corporation by
maximally utilizing Diplomacy, which is proud
of its vividly alive information and great advertising
Diplomacy will ceaselessly
advance forward in order to present the bright
roads toward globalization and the prosperity
I ask for your
kind encouragements. Thank you very much.
