I am Lee Pil-yong, the mayor of Eumseong.
Thank you for your interest in Eumseong.
Eumseong is a rapidly developing city in the middle of Korea. You will see its diverse attractions throughout this website.
As the hometown of Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Eumseong boasts well-balanced agricultural and industrial sectors. It is a main center of transportation and logistics with two national highways (Jungbu Highway and Jungbu Inland Highway), one national highway (Dongseo Highway) expected to open in 2012, and one railway station (Gamgok Station) opening in 2016. The current Jungbu New Town Plan will surely contribute to making Eumseong a main city in the middle of Korea.
This website is designed to offer you vital information on Eumseong; it is also an important arena through which we listen to your voices, concerns, and questions regarding our city.
We have no doubt your support and interest will help us establish Eumseong as the “City with the Best Quality of Life.”
Thank you once again for your interest in Eumseong.
We wish you and your family nothing but the best and happiness.
