The government plans to participate in the post-war reconstruction project in Ukraine. It plans to form a consultative body composed of the government, public corporations, and corporations within this month and start the reconstruction project.

Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport Minister Won Hee-ryong met with Ukrainian Ambassador to Korea Dmitro Ponomarenko and two Ukrainian lawmakers on the 6th.It announced that they had discussed ways to cooperate on a project to rebuild Mariupol, which had lost its functions after the Ukrainian War.

Earlier, on the 4th, the government participated in the ‘Ukraine Reconstruction Conference’ held in Lugano, Switzerland and expressed its will to participate in the Ukraine reconstruction project.

An official from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said, “Through a meeting between Minister Won and Ukrainian lawmakers, it is expected that Korean companies will participate in the Ukraine reconstruction project worth 750 billion dollars (about 980.55 trillion won) around the time. It will become more robust.”

“The Russian invasion destroyed 12,000 homes in Mariupol and 95% of infrastructure,” said Ukrainian lawmaker Sergi Taruta, who spoke with Won. . At the same time, he suggested that the Korean government and companies take charge of rebuilding Mariupol with a new standard, using their experience in post-war restoration and new town development.

Minister Won responded, “I sympathize with the pain and suffering that the Ukrainian people are experiencing due to the war.”

Immediately after the meeting, Minister Won ordered that the government take the lead in Ukraine’s reconstruction project by establishing a public-private cooperation system based on the experience of the Iraq reconstruction project currently underway. To this end, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport plans to form a Ukrainian Reconstruction Council this month and establish a cooperative network with the Ukrainian government.
