[Good Bye, Yeosu Expo] Thank You Message by the Chairman of the Organizing Committee

Mr. Kang Dong-suk, the chairman of the Organizing Committee for Yeosu Expo delivered a thank you message to Yeosu citizens, volunteers, SNS supporters, participant countries, international organizations, and other related personnel.

“Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea proposed a new agenda by driving attention to the ocean which global people have little paid attention so far. Also, Yeosu Expo called on international interest in finding a clever way to utilize the ocean.”

He also rated this expo as a great chance which South Korean showed its potential – a small city of Korean Southern Coast hosted one of the world’s big 3 events.

Though 10 million people including visitors and coordinators visited Yeosu Expo, there was no accident at Expo site. Yeony and Suny owe the success of Yeosu Expo to the mature citizenship of citizens and effort made by all the coordinators.

Mr. Kang especially expressed his appreciation to all the efforts and cooperation of the citizens and international organizations for the last 4 years and 6 months of preparation and 93 days’ operation.

Yeony and Suny will never forget these efforts for the successful Yeosu Expo!
