South Korea gears up preparations for hosting Busan World Expo 2030

ISLAMABAD: South Korea is gearing up for a major international exhibition, “Busan World Expo 2030” set to be held in Busan Metropolitan City.
Newly elected President of South Korea Mr Yoon Seok-youl is taking personal interest to make the expo a global event – better than recently held World Expo 2020 Dubai.

At the World Expo 2025 Osaka-Kansai, Korea will present a global vision for future paradigm shifts, under the theme of ‘Transforming Our World, Navigating toward a Better Future,’ with three sub-themes such as a sustainable planet, technology for humanity and platform for sharing and caring.

At the recently held World Expo 2020 Dubai, the Korean Pavilion was decorated with 1,597 spinning cubes, symbolically demonstrating Korea’s dynamism leading the Fourth Industrial Revolution and sharing the future vision with mankind as a whole under the theme of the ‘Smart Korea, Moving the World to You.’

Busan is well known as one of the world’s most dynamic cities, which draws attention for its history of transformation from the town of Korean war refugees to the vibrant hub of commerce and culture.

Currently, Busan serves as a transport and logistics hub having the world’s 2nd largest trans-shipment port which provides easy access thanks to its railways, roads, ports, and airport.

At the same time, it is transforming into a global city boasting openness, broad-mindedness, and diversity on the basis of K-Pop, movies, and games, and in the near future, it will also be equipped with the infrastructure to become an eco-friendly smart city with digital technology.

Chae Tae-won, SK Group Chairman and the Korea Chamber of Commerce & Industry (KCCI) chairman has been appointed as the co-chair of Korea’s bid committee representing the private sector.

Chey told Pakistan Today that “Busan World Expo 2030 will address various challenges the world is facing. I believe it will offer a valuable opportunity for the countries to share experiences and seek solutions together.”

Hosting the World Expo 2030 will make Busan as an inspiring city that leads the historical transformation of Korea once again.

The World Expo 2030 Busan will provide both the right time and the right place for global citizens to gather and start a discourse on grand transformations toward a better future for mankind.

The World Expo has been spreading hope and vision to humanity, irrespective of race, region, generation, and gender.
