The Ministry of Unification signed the Agreement for Peace and Prosperity on the Korean Peninsula with the Governors Association of Korea (GAK) representing 17 governors and mayors including the mayor of Seoul at the 42nd general meeting of the GAK held at the Westin Chosun Busan on July 24.

The agreement calls for building strategic cooperative relations between the Ministry of Unification and local governments, supporting local governments’ exchange and cooperation with the North, creating an institutional framework for communication and cooperation, and conducting unification education to build consensus.
