World Expo 2030: Busan, South Korea on ballot to host the event

Must read

South Korea implements all the qualities that have allowed it to become a country to be reckoned with today, for almost 70 years. South Korea has established itself as a country of technological innovations, a leader in robotics and obviously a cultural power. This is how the fresh morning country, in its plans to host as usual major planetary events such as the Olympics (twice) and the 2002 World Cup, embarked on an ambitious project to host Expo 2030, in its futuristic city Busan. With the theme “Transforming our world, Navigating towards a better future”, the authorities have made this application a priority project under the Yoon Suk-Yeol administration and to do this, nothing is left to chance.

With a population of more than 3.4 million inhabitants, the showcase city of Busan to host the 2030 World Expo is “a unique place in the history of South Korea”. It has been the main point of commercial and cultural interaction with the outside world for centuries. Thus, this carbon-neutral city occupies an optimal geographical location at the intersection of the Eurasian continent and the Pacific Ocean, easily accessible from all regions of the world.

The experience of a country organizing world events, a major argument for the South Korean candidacy South Korea is in battle order to promote Busan’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo so that the country can join the very select club of nations that have hosted this major event. Indeed, South Korea being a country very accustomed to hosting large-scale events, will stop at nothing to highlight these organizational assets. The city of Busan where Expo 2030 could be held, hosted the 2002 Asian Games in the past and was also the host city of the FIFA World Cup in 2002 and the site of the ASEAN-Korea summit in 2019 Thus, these trials and its triumphs have helped put the country on the forefront of the world stage. The other argument of the South Korean candidacy remains its economic success. In forty years, the country has become the tenth world power, in particular thanks to its technological and automotive innovations, driven by national champions such as Samsung and Hyundai. Being the 6th largest exporter in the world with 644 billion dollars, Korea has been, since 2018, one of the countries with a population of more than 50 million and having a GDP per capita of more than 30,000 USD alongside the United States, Japan, from the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and France. Today, the country’s economy has reached a nominal GDP of 1.66 billion dollars last year, compared to 41 million just after the war in 1953. To this end, these economic arguments should undoubtedly make you think about Korea’s ability to host World Expo 2030 in Busan. If the Expo should take place from May 1 to October 31, 2030, the host country will be designated in November 2023, in Paris. Thus for the holding of this world event that is the universal exhibition in Busan, the office of the Korean candidacy provides in all, an investment of 3.6 billion dollars.
