Railway transportation in Korean peninsula no longer represents division and conflict, but it represents peace and prosperity. It also brings new economic cooperation in the region, and promotes reorganization of spacial structure in East Asia.
At the 4.27 Inter-Korean summit, PyeongChang Olympic high-speed railway which North Korean officials took was one of the main issue, and the conversations here highly affected the Panmunjeom Declaration.
This international seminar will examine the political and economic effects of the Gyeongui railway and shed new light on the Gyeongui railway in the upcoming era. We will no longer recall our past which resembles faded photographs, but will dream of the Gyeongui railway, the symbol of peace and prosperity.
This year we seed “Gyeongui railway” as peace and prosperity. We would be appreciated if you join us in our meaningful seminar and share your opinions.
