"What we do now is to act as a pioneer in sowing seeds for the success of the Korea-Japan tunnel, and in fact it is for our descendants, so don't think about it immediately and feel a sense of mission. Let's do our best with it. "Gwontesin, Vice-Chairman of the National Competitiveness Enhancement Committee, gave a special lecture on the theme of "The Road to Developed Countries."

" I emphasized.
The Korea-Japan Tunnel Study Group was founded in 2008 and has more than 280 members.Through activities such as academic seminars, special lectures, Korea-Japan tunnel promotion competitions, Korea-Japan exchanges, field reconnaissance, and newsletter issuance, this study group has been made aware of the necessity of Korea-Japan tunnel construction at home and abroad.Has this study group been in the past year?Korea-Japan Tunnel Promotion Busan Wide Area City Tournament?Korea-Japan Undersea Tunnel Tsushima Site Tour?We are engaged in activities such as publishing a newsletter, and this year we are planning to hold events such as the "North-South Longitudinal Railway and Korea-Japan Tunnel" seminar and the "Silk Road Field Reconnaissance".In connection with future activities, Co-Representative Lee Young-Hum said, "It is a pity that the discussions have been slow due to lack of understanding of the expansion of distribution bases, even though the Korea-Japan Undersea Tunnel Construction Project is a national issue." The Japan-Korea Tunnel Research Institute, which is a private organization, wants to play a role in placing flying stones by carrying out sustainable activities based on the contents of research so far.

On November 11, the Korea Construction Industry Research Institute released the "18 Korea Construction Industry Major Issues and Trends Forecast" report, and "Green Infrastructure Construction" for construction projects that are expected to have a significant ripple effect on Korea in the future. "City with zero emissions" "China-Korea, Japan-Korea tunnel" and so on.Multiple Korean media outlets reported it.In August, the research institute asked 2020 construction-related workers such as construction companies, design / engineering companies, universities / research institutes in Korea to evaluate 8 construction projects.The project, which is expected to have a great ripple effect on South Korea, was evaluated from the aspects of technological development of the construction industry, improvement of the quality of life of the people, internationalization and contribution to overseas exports.
As a result, "green infrastructure construction" recorded high scores in all items.The China-Korea Tunnel and the Japan-Korea Tunnel are also said to have a great effect on the development of construction technology and the development of overseas markets.According to the research institute, the Japan-Korea tunnel connecting Japan and South Korea is likely to start in earnest around 2020.Economic problems have become a major issue for the Japan-Korea tunnel, but it is expected that it will be solved by proceeding with a large-scale city planning at the entrance and exit of the tunnel, and the project cost of the tunnel will be 110-120 trillion won (about 7-). 8 trillion yen), and the construction period is 10 to 15 years.“The number of Chinese and Japanese tourists visiting Korea will far exceed 2020 million a year in 1000,” said Lee Bok-nam, a researcher at the institute. It will be difficult to support, "he said of the need for undersea tunnels.
The report cited "global economic changes" and "green growth such as changes in the global environment" as the main factors that will bring about changes in the construction industry in 2020.More than 6% of the respondents answered that the growth potential of the construction market in South Korea was "low", and 7% of the respondents answered that the growth potential of the construction market overseas was "high".
