'2000 Koyang World Flower Exhibition' to Open Next Month

The '2000 Koyang World Flower Exhibition,' is scheduled to open next month. The exhibition will be held at 'Hosu Park' in Ilsan, Koyang-si from April 26 to May 7. The exhibition's budget is approximately 8.7 billion won, or $770,000.
Thirty-seven countries and 244 enterprises will participate in the event. Foreign countries including the Netherlands, one of the world's most respected flower harvesters, and Japan will participate.
It has recently been revealed that Ecuador, Chile, and Nigeria will also be represented in this event, so interested spectators will be able to see many different kinds of rare plants from Africa and South America.
Filipino orchids, a rare tropical jungle plant, will be exhibited for the first time in Korea. These orchids display scores of palm-sized flowers with purplish brown spots when they are in bloom.
During the first two days of the flower festival, only professional horticulturists will be admitted. This restriction is meant to encourage import and export between various countries.
