Chairman's Message

Among the world’s three greatest festivals, the Olympics, FIFA World Cup, and the World Expo, the one with the most outreaching impact is by far, the Expo. Coming May 12 to August 12, 2012, a World Expo will be held in Korea’s southern city of Yeosu for three months.

With the theme The Living Ocean and Coast, Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea will be a monumental event where all related technologies and knowledge on the“ocean,” the beginning of all sources of life and the treasure chest of abundant resources, come together. Marking 20 years since the Daejeon Expo 1993, the Yeosu Expo will be the second internationally recognized exposition hosted by Korea.

We look forward to your enthusiastic interest and support for a successful Expo.

Thank you.

Kang Dong-Suk
The Organizing Committee for Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea
