Scouts who participated in the ‘2023 Saemangeum World Scout Jamboree’ withdrew from the campsite in Saemangeum, Buan-gun, North Jeolla Province to avoid typhoon ‘Kanun’ on the 8th. Participants will be scattered at 128 facilities in 8 cities and provinces, including Seoul and the metropolitan area, and stay until the 12th when the competition ends. The Jamboree Organizing Committee, which caused controversy over ‘poor preparation’ from the opening day, decided to remain in Saemangeum for ‘camp demolition work’ and is in fact stepping back from the front. From the 9th, each local government that has accepted the Jamboree participants has increased responsibility for event management, from reorganizing the schedule for the remaining four days and three nights to preparing specific safety measures.
In a briefing on the morning of the 8th, Minister of Public Administration and Security Lee Sang-min said, “We are operating 128 accommodations in cooperation with 8 cities and provinces, including the metropolitan area,” in preparation for Typhoon Kanun. We are moving to the destination,” he said.
Starting with the departure of the first bus carrying Taiwanese participants at 9:00 am on the day, all youth scouts withdrew from Saemangeum at 4:00 pm and went to accommodations in Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon, Chungbuk, Chungnam, Daejeon, Sejong, and Jeonbuk. Scattered.
The government initially decided to move most of the personnel to the metropolitan area, but it was not easy to secure accommodation, so it expanded the area to the Chungcheong area to prepare accommodation. Accommodations provided by the government먹튀검증 are mainly public institutions and corporate training centers, university dormitories, and religious facility training centers, and some military facilities are also included. Minister Lee explained, “According to the purpose of the Jamboree, we decided to make it a large accommodation where delegations from many countries can gather together.”
The process of withdrawing from the Saemangeum campsite on this day was led by the central government, not by the Jamboree Organizing Committee. This is because President Yoon Seok-yeol ordered the preparation of government-level measures in preparation for the typhoon the day before and organized the Jamboree Emergency Response Team. Minister Lee, who served as secretary of the Emergency Response Team, said in a briefing that afternoon, “In order to smoothly proceed with the remaining schedule, we will dispatch 9 director-level regional officers of the Ministry of Public Administration and Security to 8 cities and provinces from the 9th to support the safety and convenience of Jamboree participants. ” he said.
With the completion of the early withdrawal of the Jamboree participants from the Saemangeum campsite on this day, the Jamboree Organizing Committee seems to be withdrawing from the entire event operation. Minister of Gender Equality and Family Kim Hyeon-sook, co-chairman of the organizing committee, said at a briefing that afternoon, “The organizing committee will be staying in Jeonbuk because it has to fix various things, such as demolition of the (camping site).”
As a result, the role that each local government that accommodated the Jamboree participants has to assume has become even greater. It also became the responsibility of the local government to create an experiential activity program for the Jamboree participants for the remaining four days and three nights. The only ‘confirmed’ schedule that was visible until this afternoon was the decision to hold a K-pop concert and closing ceremony at the Seoul World Cup Stadium (Sangam Stadium) for 2 hours from 7:00 pm on the 11th. Bang Bang-gyu, head of the Office for Government Policy Coordination, said at the afternoon briefing that day, “The head of the local government in the region where the Jamboree participants are assigned is in charge of running the program.” Accordingly, Chungcheongbuk-do announced that it would carry out a visit program to Cheongnamdae, which was open after being used as a former president’s resort, including the temple stay in Guinsa, Danyang, the home of the Cheontae sect. did.
In addition, responsibility for safety and hygiene management of Jamboree participants has also increased. Each local government, including Gyeonggi-do and Seoul Metropolitan Government, is implementing the ‘ TF for Staying Support for Jamboree Members’)’ and dispatches a ‘dedicated support group’ to the place where the event participants are staying to provide all-out support. An official from the city of Seoul said, “We plan to provide various support, such as taking care of any inconveniences while living in the accommodation, and reporting to 119 in case of an emergency, with public officials residing in the accommodation building in 24-hour shifts.”
