Busan bids hosting World Expo 2030

Feb 24, 2022, 11:04 AM

Busan Metropolitan City is aiming to host the World Expo 2030 at the Busan North Port which will run from May 1st to the end of October 2030 with the support of the Korean government.

The World Expo has been spreading hope and vision to humanity, irrespective of race, region, generation, and gender.

By hosting the World Expo 2030 in Busan following the World Expo 2020 Dubai and the World Expo 2025 Osaka-Kansai, Korea will present a global vision for future paradigm shifts, under the theme of ‘Transforming Our World, Navigating toward a Better Future,’ with three sub-themes such as a sustainable planet, technology for humanity and platform for sharing and caring.

Currently, the World Expo 2020 Dubai is taking place in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, for the first time in the Middle East. The Korean Pavilion, decorated with 1,597 spinning cubes, symbolically demonstrates Korea's dynamism leading the Fourth Industrial Revolution and sharing the future vision with mankind as a whole under the theme of the ‘Smart Korea, Moving the World to You.’

Busan is well known as one of the world’s most dynamic cities, which draws attention for its history of transformation from the town of Korean war refugees to the vibrant hub of commerce and culture.

Currently, it serves as a transport and logistics hub having the world’s 2nd largest trans-shipment port which provides easy access thanks to its railways, roads, ports, and airport. At the same time, it is transforming into a global city boasting openness, broad-mindedness, and diversity on the basis of K-Pop, movies and games, and in the near future, it would also be equipped with the infrastructure to become an eco-friendly smart city with digital technology.

Hosting the World Expo 2030 will make Busan an inspiring city that leads the historical transformation of Korea once again.

The World Expo 2030 Busan would provide both the right time and the right place for global citizens to gather and start a discourse on grand transformations toward a better future for mankind.
