With Fiscal Soundness Projected By IMF As Worst In G-20, Korean Government Announces Plan To Build Artificial Island For G-20 Meeting
"When G20 leaders meet in Seoul next November, they may be huddling on a brand new island floating on the Han River.
The plan was unveiled by Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon, Monday, during a ceremony marking the opening of the G20 organizing committee office, located at the Korea Banking Institute near the presidential office in central Seoul.
The artificial island ― designed to resemble Dubai's Palm Jumeirah ― is part of the Seoul City's Han River Renaissance Project and will be built by next spring close to Banpo Bridge connecting the downtown districts on both sides of the river."
