There are 67 related projects and programs for the festival in five categories, including 15 projects for promotion, 14 for security, and 24 additional programs in which KRW 7.5 billion will be invested.

 

Key tasks include promoting the 2022 Asian Cup Boryeong International Yacht Championship, strengthening security at event sites and public facilities, improving public transportation, preparing for the 8th Pan-Yellow Sea Forum, and supporting volunteers.

 

The Maritime & Fisheries Bureau of the provincial government will continue to share developments with the Organizing Committee and Boryeong-si to address vulnerabilities.

 

In addition, the province will promote the participation of provincial residents, strengthen infection prevention and security efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and implement a phased pandemic recovery program.

 

Governor Yang said, “We need to be very careful in preparing for the festival as the number of cases is rising amid the spread of the Omicron variant, and we must develop multiple scenarios to cope with contingencies that may occur during the festival.

 

He noted, “We should be united in identifying and addressing difficulties. The festival will require thorough preparation for infection prevention while creating new growth in the province and inducing the participation of 2.2 million residents from 15 cities and countries.
