  From April 26 to 28, the third Asia-Pacific Association for International Education Conference was held in Waseda University in Japan. The conference included the presidents of each university from United States, Europe, Korea, China, Japan, Australia, Middle East and South-East Asia. The purpose of this conference was encouraging interaction and understanding between participating countries. On the first day of the meeting, the president of Hanyang University (HYU), Kim Chong Yang gave a speech.

  "The Next Wave in Asia Pacific Higher Education" was the title of his speech. In his speech, he said "A country's globalized high education can build its reputation and can be invaluable resources for winning the world competition." In the case of Japan, they set their aim to attract 100,000 foreign students. The result was successful. Other Asian countries pour their effort into globalization, as well. The education motto for China is "Only the first survives." Based on utilitarianism, they gradually plan to reform and reorganize their system.

  Korea is not exceptional. From the year 2004, the government set 'Study Korea Project'. The project has attracted 50,000 students from all over the world. The further investment would be a huge amount.

  President Kim pointed out that despite the effort of Asian countries education reformation, there is still a limit, and he suggested five solutions to get through the wall. Globalizing faculty members and students, making good promotions for the university, participating in international seminars and conferences more actively, promoting international exchange programs, and being mutual associates for each other are what he suggested.

  HYU gradually increases its English oriented classes and foreign faculty members. The first semester of this year, there are about 1,600 English oriented classes in HYU.  Also, approximately 25,000 foreign students are studying in HYU. The professor Lee Seung-cheol who also attended the conference said, "HYU is already in the wave of globalization, but we still need to set our aim higher. So we have a long way to go."
