Mr. (문대림) Mun Dae-rim has taken office as CEO of Jeju Free International City Development Center.
He has pledged that his office will make their best efforts to normalize the organization’s long drifting projects, including the (예래) Yerae Resort Residential Complex and Jeju Healthcare Town.
Mike Balfour reports.
Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that all administrative measures regarding the (예래) Yerae Resort Residential Complex were invalid. As a result, all construction work has been suspended.
Mr. (문대림) Mun Dae-rim, the newly appointed CEO of the developer, Jeju Free International City Development Center, is prioritizing normalization of the (예래) Yerae project.

Mun Dae-rim / JDC CEO
The fates of JDC and myself hang upon how we settle the long drifting projects. I will do my best to find ways to normalize the Yerae complex.
"저와 JDC의 운명이 이 사업의 정상화에 달려 있다는 각오 아래 휴양형주거단지 사업이 임기 내에 반드시 정상화될 수 있는 방안을 찾아내겠습니다."
Greenland International Hospital in Jeju Healthcare Town is another headache to JDC.
A public hearing is scheduled to cancel the license of the for-profit investor-owned hospital. Hospital investors have filed a lawsuit against the province.

Mun says his office will also make every effort to seek reasonable solutions for the derailed for-profit hospital.
He announced that the JDC will increase investment in and concentrate on 4th industry instead of focusing on mega development projects.
[slug] Mun opposes JDC transfer to province
At a press conference, the new CEO said he opposes transfer of the JDC from the national government to the province.
He added that it’s not true that he had pledged to transfer the organization to the province during last year’s local election.
Mun Dae-rim / JDC CEO
I am opposed to the transfer. JDC, which is under the national government, is beneficial to the island. The province should utilize the organization to accept islanders’ opinions and demands.
"이관 얘기가 나왔던 것인데 그게 아니다. JDC는 국가기관으로서 제주도 입장에서는 상당한 특혜적 조직이다. 잘 활용해서 제주도민의 이해와 요구를 받아안고.."
