    Policies on Gvalley to Improve Working Environments and Expand Jobs

    Date: May 2, 2013
    Venue: Mayor’s on-site office, Gvalley

    Nice to meet you everyone! I am Park Won Soon, the mayor of Seoul.

    I sincerely thank all of you—entrepreneurs, workers, and professors—for making time to participate in today’s meeting, which was organized for the development of Gvalley.

    After having a luncheon meeting with some workers at a cafeteria, I listened to key agenda involving Gvalley in greater detail through a presentation and an onsite visit.

    At the Hope Listening Policy Concert, which was held on April 17, 2012, we saw eye to eye on numerous issues faced by Gvalley. After the policy concert, the Gvalley Development Committee was organized, which represents an attempt to share ideas among relevant institutions and entrepreneurs while turning such ideas into policies. Also, a series of discussions and onsite inspections were held to see the policies being put into action. Some were quite feasible, but most policies are ongoing or will be executed over the long haul.

    Through the operation of the Mayor’s on-site office, I sincerely hope Gvalley, Korea’s largest knowledge industry cluster, breathes new hope into Seoul’s economy and serves as an incubator for the creation of more fun and exciting jobs.

    The invaluable opinions you shared today will become a source of inspiration for the further advancement of Gvalley.

    Thank you.
