Meeting between Religious Leaders on Ethics and Morality in the Asian Economy

by Staff

March 2010

Archbishop Johnson recently met with Bishop You, of the Roman Communion, on matters of faith and morality and their relationship to the modern Asian economy, who was to meet the following day with the Korean Prime Minister to discuss the same topic. The conclusion of the lengthy meeting was that the modern marketplace must be built on a foundation of faith-based ethical behavior. Without this foundation, the economy is likely to suffer from problems such as the current economic crisis. Both bishops noticed a marked decline in the overall morality of society and agreed that work to improve this situation must continue.
