Among the many facets noted since the launch of the Moon Jae-in Administration‚ presidential speeches have captured considerable public attention and won over hearts.
This compilation of selected speeches contains addresses and remarks made by President Moon at official events and major conferences that took place after he took office on May 10‚ 2017‚ up to May 10‚ 2018. During the year following his inauguration‚ President Moon has engaged in vibrant communication with the public on 286 occasions through speeches at major events and remarks at closed meetings as well as open messages.
Among these addresses and remarks‚ 33 of particular interest to international media and foreign nationals have been selected‚ translated into English and bound here. The book reflects the President’s commitment to communicating and sharing even more messages with the foreign press and international opinion leaders more actively‚ beyond the language barrier.
The achievements of the Moon Jae-in Administration over the past year were made possible thanks to the people’s unwavering support and encouragement‚ which was facilitated by President Moon’s ceaseless efforts to communicate with them. Furthermore‚ the international community's endorsement and interest is also vital to ensure that the President's management of state affairs and diplomatic initiatives reap greater success.
I hope that this collection of speeches provides you with a clear understanding of the Moon Jae-in Administration’s first year. I look forward to you grasping hands with the Administration so that its objectives won’t get lost in the remaining four years.
Thank you very much.
Chief of Staff to the President
