City Planning & Government Relocation Projects
Unparalleled Infrastructure Development Under Way
The Real Green City with Environmental Initiatives
Located in the heart of the Republic of Korea - about 120 km (75 miles) south of Seoul, Multifunctional Administrative City (MAC) was conceived to relieve overcrowding in Seoul and promote balanced regional economic development. In addition to relocating the Republic of Korea?셲 federal ministries and other executive offices from Seoul to MAC, the Korean government designated Sejong as a center of research, education, and high-tech industry.
With financial and investment support, MAC will attract corporations from across the globe. MAC is 2 hours away from the Republic of Korea?셲 major cities and close to airports and ports that connect it to the world. With green spaces more than half of the city area and a forward thinking energy policy, MAC will be one of the world?셲 greenest cities.
To build MAC, the Republic of Korean government established a new government agency, the Multifunctional Administrative City Construction Agency (MACCA) in 2006 in accordance with the Special Act on Multifunctional Administrative City Construction. Later in 2010, the National Assembly passed a bill allowing establishment of the self-governing city government by 2012 in accordance with the Special Act on Establishment of Sejong Special Self-governing City. The First Town Apartment Complex in the city?셲 first residential area has a population of about 18,549 as of February 2013 and 36 executive Ministries and agencies relocate to MAC from 2012 to 2014. MAC?셲 population is expected to reach 500,000 by 2030.
Established in 2006, the Multifunctional Administrative Construction Agency is overseeing the development of the Multifunctional Administrative City in Sejong, a multi-billion dollar project. Read more >>
