The meeting, co-chaired by Prime Minister Han Duck-soo and Chey Tae-won, Chairman of the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry(KCCI), discussed the detailed plans for this year’s bidding activities. The meeting aimed to unite the public and private sectors’ bidding capabilities ahead of the decision on the 2030 World Expo host site in late November.

The committee’s focus was on external negotiation activities, Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) due diligence and competitive PT, as well as internal and external public relations. Chey Tae-won emphasized the importance of public-private sector collaboration to secure the 2030 World Expo bid in Busan, South Korea, at the end of November.
