OCBPA Participants Made a Site Visit

The Organizing Committee for Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea announced that relevant participants from home and abroad made a site visit to the Ocean & Coast Best Practice Area (OCBPA).

The Organizing Committee said that participants, such as Samsung Heavy Industries, Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., STX, K-Water, Northwest Pacific Action Plan, and Yellow Sea Large Marine Ecosystem, were given information on the plans and current status of exhibition preparations and underwent technical negotiations with the Organizing Committee.

The site visit began with a tour of the Yeosu Expo 2012 Promotion Center for updates on the current preparation status of the Expo, then moved on to the OCBPA located on the second floor of the Theme Pavilion for insights on the surrounding conditions and the exhibition space. An overall briefing on the progress of OCBPA exhibition plans was held later on, followed by technical negotiations between the participants and the Organizing Committee.

“We hope the site visit allowed the participants to get a clear picture of the theme and purpose of Yeosu Expo, and I am glad that technical negotiations went well thanks to the briefing on well-prepared exhibition plans,” said Kang Hyun-joo, Deputy Director General of the OCBPA Department. “We also hope that participants speed up their efforts to further develop their exhibition contents after their site visit.”

The OCBPA is scheduled to be completed by March 2012. It will focus not only on the world’s top technologies but also today’s best policies and knowhow, regarding the oceans and coasts. At the communication lab inside the OCBPA, a series of special lectures are to be given to provide in-depth knowledge about relevant issues.

Information on the OCBPA can be found on its official blog (http://blog.naver.com/ocbpa), where some events related to the OCBPA are already up and running.
