Ambassador’s visit to the ‘Busan Eco Delta Smart City’ project
 
On 3 August 2022, H.E. Witchu Vejjajiva, Ambassador of Thailand to the ROK visited the ‘Busan Eco Delta Smart City’ project in Busan, which the ROK government started building in December 2019 in cooperation with K-Water. At present, K-Water has selected residents to move into 56 households in the project’s Smart Village as a ‘smart living lab’ trial phase. Every household utilizes effective water management technologies to create a comprehensive renewable energy system in the Village. K-Water is also in the process of developing other smart systems in the city, such as transportation and healthcare systems which will use innovative technologies such as AI, city bots, and VR.
 
On this occasion, the Ambassador received a warm welcome from Mr. Kim Jin, General Director of K-Water’s Smart City Department, along with a team of executives from K-Water. The Ambassador informed that the Thai Prime Minister attended the groundbreaking ceremony of this project in November 2019, and since then has continually expressed interest in the progress of the project, in order to use it as a case study for developing smart cities in Thailand. Moreover, the Ambassador also discussed opportunities for collaboration between K-Water and Thai companies that are interested in diversifying their business areas into smart city technologies.
