[ News, Culture / Events, January 29 2008] Incheon to host World City Expo in 2009

Korea’s third-largest city and second-largest port of Incheon will host the World City Expo in August.

The Incheon City Hall formed in February 2007 a committee to organize the World City Expo. The non-profit organization received support from the central government. Committee executives and employees were appointed from the Incheon government and subsidiary organizations.

Experts say the majority of the world’s population will keep moving to cities, so urban flight will rise as a key global issue. Under this circumstance, cooperation and exchanges among international cities are growing in importance.
