South Korea will change its capital

The government of Korea has decided to build a new state capital in the middle of the country. The project begins in 2007. It is hoped that in this way Seoul, a huge metropolis with more than 10 million inhabitants, will become less overcrowded. The new capital will be built 160 km away from Seoul, in the province of Chungcheong, which is easily accessible from any part of the country. It is hoped that the first ministries will move to the new city in 2012.

Special thanks for Donald Gasper who had checked and corrected my translation from interlingua.
