The Overseas Korean Foundation (OKF) held the 2022 World Korean Community Leaders Convention and the 16th World Korean Day Celebration Event on Oct. 4–7, 2022. This year’s event is particularly more meaningful as Incheon, the official departing grounds of international airways, was selected to celebrate the 120th anniversary of Korean emigration. Under the slogan of “The Return of Global Koreans,” 331 Korean community leaders from 67 countries participated in the event to share their ideas on the sound development of overseas Korean communities and to exchange cases of exemplary management of Korean associations.  The following photographs show the enthusiasm of the event.
