(19 Nov 2021) The South Korean government has decided to build a new database center on unification on the outskirts of Seoul, where the current information center will be relocated after expansion, according to a government source Friday.
The Ministry of Unification, which handles inter-Korean affairs, earlier formed an internal panel for the relocation project, which has picked the site near the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) in Goyang, just northwest of Seoul, the source said.
If constructed on the land at the size of around 6,611 square meters, it will serve as the country’s new mecca for historical records and other materials as well as research in connection with North Korea and unification.
The ministry has operated the Information Center on North Korea for more than 30 years at leased facilities. It is currently situated at the National Library of Korea in southern Seoul.
