YUN Seong-won Vice Minister for Land and Infrastructure

Our ministry promises to continuously develop our land as a place where all of our citizens can live a fulfilling life. Creating an inclusive and innovative society is at the heart of our work to form a better future for our citizens.

We are dedicated to alleviating the housing concerns of our people. By establishing welfare networks for wider populations we aim to provide a more stable and pleasant residential environment. With strong efforts we will work to bring stability to the housing market through detailed monitoring and timely policy actions.

In seeking to balance our national development we will revitalize regional growth engines such as Innovation Cities, Saemangeum, etc. Furthermore, the Urban Regeneration New Deal Initiative will continue to be pursued to support the sustainable growth of our cities.

We will turn hope into a reality as soon as possible for our people. We are striving to incorporate innovative elements into the daily lives of our citizens by advancing projects which include smart cities, hydrogen cities, and spatial information. The construction industry will be set as a valid model for continued growth with the extensive application of smart technology. At the same time, we will exert an all-out effort to create quality jobs.

Safety is a fundamental value for all. We will ensure the lives of our citizens will not be threatened by ageing buildings or facilities. Preventive measures will be thoroughly taken to protect our citizens against disasters including earthquakes, fires, etc.

Creativity and innovation that can make a real difference in the world begin with a convergent, complex, and broad perspective that encompasses many different sectors and fields. With such a wide scope of view we will open a new future for our land, following the flow of change and innovation and carefully listening to the voices of our citizens.

Thank you.
