Noh Hyeong Ouk Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport

Hello everyone. My name is Noh Hyeong Ouk, Minister for Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Thank you for visiting our website.

Let me first express our commitment to continual, open and honest communication with our citizens regarding the development of policies in the field of land, infrastructure and transport. We will endeavor to implement policies that our citizens can put their trust in.

We are deeply aware that a comfortable home is the foundation of a robust life. We are determined to supply sufficient housing units in desirable locations to address anxieties in the housing market and help our people prepare for a better future in stable residential environments.

We will strive to enact measures that will ease the housing burden on our citizens, especially for younger people, newlyweds, and vulnerable groups. We will improve our housing market system and enforce strict rules in order to prevent real estate speculation.

Next, based on our long-term goal of sustainable growth, we will continue to promote balanced national development between the Seoul metropolitan area and the rest of the nation. With the Korean New Deal Initiative we are focusing on building smart cities, hydrogen cities, and digital twin. Through these efforts, we are prepared to respond to the post-pandemic era and continue pursuing our goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.

One of our top priorities is protecting the safety and lives of our people. We will implement three key projects aimed at protecting people’s lives and establish systems to prevent safety accidents by using advanced technologies.

To transform our industries into people-centered, high value-added industries, we will incorporate smart technologies and provide quality jobs to our citizens. We will foster unity between new and existing industries to drive the Fourth Industrial Revolution together.

We will also make sure that our transportation infrastructure, which plays a vital role in connecting our nation, will be established in a balanced way.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport will always do its best to bring convenience, safety, and stability to the lives of our citizens.

We look forward to connecting with our citizens through our online platforms. Please feel free to contact us through our website or Facebook account.

Thank you.
