Busan Mayor Park Heong-joon at center of diplomacy
Building on the response of two World Expo 2030 host competition presentations, Mayor Park Heong-joon continues domestic and international diplomacy and activities for the city's candidature.
Last year, he traveled the globe to network and spread awareness of Busan's positioning in the Bureau International des Expositions' competition to host the World Expo in 2030. Additionally, the city hosted promotional activities for international diplomats and journalists in Korea. Mayor Park asked for support from senior personnel around the world and this will continue throughout 2023, when he is scheduled to visit more Pacific Islands and Africa with customized diplomacy plans.
