May 20, 2017 – Chargé d’Affaires ad interim (CDA) Marc Knapper visited the island of Jeju, taking the pulse of its leadership and engaging in public outreach.  The CDA first exchanged views on the bilateral relationship with Governor Won Hee-ryong.  He then traversed to the eastern coast of the island to  attend the “6th International Polo Match”, where he conversed with players from Singapore, China and Korea — mostly prominent businessmen — and spectators, gave congratulatory remarks at the pregame ceremony, and tossed the first ball to start the match.  In the evening, he crisscrossed to the southwestern side of the island to deliver remarks at the gala dinner of the “Second Jeju Food & Wine Festival”.
