Dear Distinguished Members of the ICAPP Standing Committee,

This is to inform you that Ambassador Park Ro-byug has recently resigned from the position of Acting Secretary General after successfully concluding his service for almost 3 years since January 2018. We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for his leadership and dedication to the ICAPP over the past few years.

Consequently, the Secretariat recommends the appointment of Hon. Cho Byung-Jae, former Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Malaysia and to Myanmar, and former Chancellor of the Korea National Diplomatic Academy (KNDA), as the new Secretary General of the ICAPP.

Please find Ambassador Cho’s curriculum vitae attached for your reference.

Upon the Standing Committee’s appointment, which is subject to confirmation at the next General Assembly, Ambassador Cho will execute functions as described in Articles 12-13 of the ICAPP Charter, and will be in charge of the general management of the Secretariat. Also, he will perform such other functions as entrusted by the General Assembly and the Standing Committee.

We kindly ask that all Standing Committee members respond to the Secretariat’s proposal for the appointment of the new Secretary General via email to by Friday October 9th, 2020.

Please let us know should you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,

Chung Eui-yong,
Co-Chairman of the Standing Committee
Seoul, Korea
