[The Chosun Ilbo, January 18 2008] Reclaimed Land to Be Used for Business, not Farming

Land reclaimed from the sea in the Saemangeum mega project in North Jeolla Province will be developed mainly as an economic hub. A taskforce under a special committee on national competitiveness reinforcement in president-elect Lee Myung-bak’s transition team said Thursday most of the reclaimed land will be used for an economic center, and the current government’s plans to turn it into farmland will be scrapped. The taskforce said it had reported the plan to Lee.
