Korea Announces Plans for Successful Pyeongchang Winter Games
Korea's Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism announced Thursday its plans for a successful 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games.
The ministry plans to form a Pyeongchang Olympic Committee within the next three months, which will be in charge of the systematic preparation for the large international sports event.
Moreover, a so-called "Culture Olympics" is also in the talks, as the government sees the Winter Games as an opportunity to promote Korean culture.
This includes holding an event overseas every year to introduce Korean arts and culture.
The ministry is also seeking ways to reduce greenhouse gas emission and reuse some of the sports infrastructures after the Winter Olympics.
And about 5-hundred-50 billion won, or around 520-million US dollars will be invested for cultivating future athletes.
