Necessity

Co-development of the capital region and local areas is the development strategy of Korea.
A substantial decentralization of population in the capital region and building a foundation for self-sufficient regional development will be realized through the relocation project!

 

Concentration in the Capital Region and Imbalance of National Territory have been an Obsta-cle to the National Development.

In the process of growth during the past 4 decades, Korea carried out an imbalanced development strategy centering around the capital region. As a result, Korea is suffering from the polarization between urban and rural areas causing high population concentration in the capital region while leaving local areas with stagnation.

Construction of Innovation City will lay Foundation for Balanced Territorial Development where Everybody can Live in Harmony Together.

More active development policies for capital region and local areas are required in order to achieve a qualitative capital region development and self-sufficient regional development.

The relocation of public agencies outside the capital region will promote region-specific development and facilitate regional economic development combined with the construction of innovation city.

The national spatial reorganization of central functions will form the basis to achieve a quantum leap in growth again through the Multi-Functional Administrative town, Innovation city construction projects as well as Comprehensive Capital Region Development Plan.
