Yangpyeong is undergoing a significant change. It is developing into an eco-city, where residents of metropolitan cities wish to live. Yangpyeong is fast-becoming a place that is filled with happiness where everyone can feel the kindness of their neighbors!
What Mayor Chung aspires to make out of Yangpyeong is an eco-city where there is a harmony of nature and people, a rich farming land that produces safe, and an eco-friendly agricultural base of products that result in high income for the hard-working farmers.
He also strives to turn Yangpyeong into a county of culture, arts and leisure sports with festivals that are held all year round!
A place without a blind spot in welfare services for the marginalized groups is also one of his mails.
He declares: “It is Yangpyeong, where people can lead enriched lives. Whenever you are exhausted by the urban life style, come along the cycling trail by the Bukhan River to Yangpyeong, where you can enjoy the kindness of people, breathtaking sceneries and delightful dishes. You will discover the true meaning of life and happiness. Visit Yangpyeong. You won't regret it.”
