We thank our generous sponsors for their support, and making Seoul Open possible.
Message from Tony Fernandes AirAsia Group CEO
Debating is the start of creativity. It is the bedrock of democracy. Debating brings together the skills necessary for informed self-expression: reading, logic, and rhetoric. The ability to evaluate ideas fairly and present them in compelling fashion still underpins modern society, especially in this era of increasing information overload, misinformation, and disinformation. Perhaps more importantly, debating allows us to actively engage with the world, from fostering a stronger civic and political identity to directing our thinking towards critical issues that affect society. If Asia is to develop a creative society the ability to confidently express oneself is imperative, and I can think of no better way to make that happen than supporting initiatives such as the Seoul Open
