Nine mayors of provincial governments and the CEO of the Republic of Naminara, a privately owned island in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, launched the travel consortium The United Nations of Imagination to promote regional tourism.

“The 10 regions will share a common passport, currency, language and promote travel programs and local products together and become leading travel destinations,” said Kang.
