Vice Unification Minister Chun Hae-sung delivered a speech at a ground-breaking ceremony for the Unification Cultural Center in the Magok District, Gangseo-gu, Seoul on April 13.
 
There were 60 attendees including Moon Hong-sun, deputy head of Gangseo-gu and other officials from appropriate agencies, local residents, and North Korean defectors.
 
The Ministry of Unification will complete the Center in October 2019 after one and a half years of construction and plans to open it in 2020.
 
The seven-story building will house a unification library, an exhibit hall, a comprehensive counseling center for North Korean defectors, a room for unification education and job training, and the like.
 
The Ministry expects that the Center will serve as a new channel for communication between North Korean defectors and local residents and also as a stepping stone to usher in an era of a unified Korea.
