Seoul Town Meeting scheduled todayThe Seoul Metropolitan Government and Seoul Global Center will hold the 11th annual Seoul Town Meeting today, which invites over 180 expatriates to ask local officials living-related questions and make suggestions to improve the city’s expatriate infrastructure and policies. The main topics discussed during the two-hour meeting will be multiculturalism and Seoul’s air quality. The meeting will start at 10 a.m. in the conference room on the 13th floor of Seoul City Hall’s Seosomun Annex .
“The government will reflect on the ideas suggested by expats at the meeting in regards to city management,” said Oh Seung-hwan, director at the city government’s Foreign Residents Assistance Division.
In response to complaints expatriates made to the Korea JoongAng Daily that last year’s meeting was focused on promoting ongoing projects and left too little room for suggestions or questions, government officials plan to operate booths in seven foreign languages for expats who didn’t have enough time to ask questions.
After the meeting, expatriates will tour Gyeongbok Palace - a Joseon Dynasty royal residence - and the National Folk Museum of Korea.
