Busan City Mac-Net Member
Marine capital in the Northeast Asia
Busan is the second largest city in Korea. Its deep harbor and gentle tides have allowed it to grow into the largest container handling port in the country and the fifth largest in the world. The city's natural endowments and rich history have resulted in Busan's increasing reputation as a world class city of tourism and culture, and it is also becoming renowned as an international convention destination.
Focusing on changes in technology and the business environment worldwide, Busan's strategic focus on its core growth industries has been reorganized twice in 2004 and 2009, with the fourth reorganization to be finalized in 2014 when the City plans to narrow its focus to concentrate on five key industries including maritime industry.
This is part of a broader vision of the port city, which is to develop itself into a center for global exchanges serving as a major hub for logistics, information, finance and tourism in the Pacific Rim. As a result of these enormous efforts, the city has become one of the world's "Super Ports" and is becoming a marine capital in the Northeast Asia era.
