Mayor of Jinju City, Jo Kyoo-il
Jinjuseong Fortress. Jo Kyoo-il

Nice to meet you everyone. I am Kyoo-il Jo, Mayor of Jinju City.

Located in the Southern region of Korea, Jinju is a very beautiful and attractive city.
With the beautiful Namgang River running through the town, Jinju has a heavenly-blessed natural environment close to Mt. Jiri National Park and Hallyeohaesang National Marine Park.

Jinju with its 1,000 year-old history is well known as the city of loyalty, culture, art and education.
Held in October annually on the banks of the Namgang River, both Jinju Namgang Yudeung

Festival, the Korean Global Promotion Festival and Gaecheon Art Festival, the first-held totally local festival in Korea, have brought unforgettable delights to numerous visitors.
Recently endorsed for its superb assets in culture and arts internationally, Jinju became member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.

Based on the rich culture and art infrastructure, the city is very vibrant, with the settlement of the Western Gyeongnam KTX Project, appointment of the Small but Strong research district, attraction of anchor businesses, the Urban Renewal Project and the settlement of public organizations that moved into the Innovation City.

Aerospace·manufacturing ·ceramic industry will create new opportunities and the 『3 Powerful Jinju Projects』 will further develop Jinju as the city of history, culture and tourism that everyone wants to visit.

The plentiful skilled manpower from 7 colleges and universities, the optimal living environment for kids, the business-friendly policies, fresh agricultural produces, and convenient and safe living infrastructure have increased the value of Jinju.

The new winds of change in Jinju will set the cornerstone for the 100 years to come where all the citizens are happy and live in abundance.

This book is an attempt to record to these new changes. I hope this will be of help as an indicator to not only Jinju citizens but also people who visit Jinju.

Thank you.
