Welcome to the website of Samcheok City, the marine tour city and cultural hub blending harmoniously with the breathtaking mountains, sea, and valley.
Under the "2020 long-term development plan" of the 5th government elected by popular vote, Samcheok City has evolved into the mecca of energy industry in Northeast Asia in the 21st century, opening the door to a new era of marine tourism. Specifically, we are pushing forward with the 330ha fire & disaster prevention industrial cluster, a key part of the 7 major strategic industrial clusters, the 10 trillion-won construction work for the No. 4 LNG (liquified natural gas) production base and power generation complexes, a large-scale national project, promotion of shipbuilding and cutting-edge glass element sectors, eco-friendly organic agricultural district projects in tandem with the establishment of the nation's first organic agriculture research & training institute, marine tourism master plans covering the ocean rail bike and offshore gondola, etc., in a bid to turn Samcheok into an economically self-reliant city with population of 200,000 by 2020.
Samcheok has become the most accessible place, thanks to the expansion of the no. 7 national highway to four lanes, East Sea Central railway linking Samcheok to Pohang, the expressway between Samcheok and Donghae, which is currently being extended, the national highway no. 38 linking Samcheock and Taebaek currently under extension & pavement works, etc. "Wonderfull" Samcheok City, full of vitality and life, will exert its best efforts to provide excellent administrative services that leave a deep impression on both citizens and netizens, helping them build a bright future and make beautiful memories.
Kim Yang-ho, Mayor of Samcheok City
