The government is set to develop Sejong city into a business hub instead of an administrative center to resolve heated controversy over the efficiency of relocating key government ministries.
A government committee set up to seek an alternative plan for the Sejong project is scheduled to hold its first meeting on Monday to come up with measures to improve the city's self-sufficiency.
Instead of relocating nine ministries and four government agencies as originally planned, the committee is looking to attract businesses, research centers, schools and hospitals to the area that can help create jobs and boost economic activity.
