Governor Kim Young-hwan discussed his reflections on his efforts for an enlivened Chungbuk with enthusiastic residents during a meeting on Oct. 11 commemorating his 100th day in office and presented his future administrative plans.

Governor Kim said, "The past 100 days were a period of securing a foundation for Chungcheongbuk-do to leap as the center of Korea by discovering new opportunities during the time of drastic changes. By directly visiting various places around the province, I thought about how I can develop each region and strived to create an administration of creative imagination based on communication and service."

Governor Kim added, "Within the desires and expectations of 1.64 million citizens of Chungcheongbuk-do, I will never forget my role of fulfilling citizens' expectations in all areas including economy, culture, environment, and welfare through change and innovation."

(3) Preparations for the enactment of the Special Act on Supporting Chungcheongbuk-do

- Although Chungcheongbuk-do has the beautiful Chungjuho Lake, Daecheongho Lake, and the Baekdudaegan Mountain Range, populations are declining in the area due to a lack of transportation facilities, and although drinking and industrial water is being supplied to Chungcheongbuk-do and the metropolitan region home to 30 million, we are experiencing economical losses of over KRW 10 trillion due to regulations.

- To compensate for the losses of Chungcheongbuk-do residents and overcome the crisis of population decline, the enactment of the Special Act on Support for Chungcheongbuk-do is being carried out to take on the role as a leader of balanced national development following cooperation with nearby cities and provinces.

- Starting with the announcement of the statement containing the wishes of 1.64 million Chungcheongbuk-do citizens along with assemblymen and the provincial assembly on Aug. 31, there was active participation from civil society organizations such as city, regional parliament, economic, womens, and cultural groups through statements to support the enactment of the Special Act, posting banners, and sending resolution documents to the National Assembly and central government, etc.

- Starting with Yeongdong-gun, Chungcheongbuk-do's vision was shared in a easy but fun way in the form of a lecture meeting through the governor's experience, knowledge, and love for the province instead of boring reports or explanations during the citizen briefing session and various other events in 11 cities and counties.
