Information
Given that the tourism sector is not subject to UN sanctions, a tourism project for inter-Korean exchanges and cooperation can be immediately implemented. This is why the tourism sector is receiving a lot of attention as a possible means of breakthrough in the current stalemate of inter-Korean relations. As a symbol of inter-Korean economic cooperation, the Geumgangsan tour program could open up a new peace economy era on the Korean Peninsula and play an interim role in establishing lasting peace. Under the title of ‘Wonsan-Kalma, Inter-Korean Tourism Development for Geumgangsan Mountain,’ the PyeongChang Peace Forum 2020 stressed the need for the attention of stakeholders and international society on the resumption of the Geumgansan tour program and development of inter-Korean joint tourist zones so as to safeguard the daily lives of citizens living near border. Building upon the discussions from last year, the PyeongChang Peace Forum 2021 will address the importance of resuming the Geumgangsan tour in the view of foreign experts who are continuing with projects, arts, research and investment related to the Geumgangsan tour program and propose a wide and diverse range of ideas for resuming suspended exchange and cooperative projects.
