BFIC, City Hall Form Council to Represent Foreign Residents Concerns

The city of Busan has formed a council to represent the voice of foreign residents living in Busan.

The city of Busan and the Busan Foundation for International Cooperation held a ceremony at the City Hall last Friday to appoint council members to the Busan Foreign Residents Committee.

The committee will consist of 20 foreign residents from nine countries, including China, Vietnam, Russia, and Canada.

They include office workers, international students, university professors, and researchers.

All of them speak in fluent Korean according to BFIC General Secretary Alok Roy.

For the next two years, the Busan Foreign Residents Committee is expected to discover issues with existing policies and also come up with new policies for foreign residents, in the areas of human rights, culture, life, and empowerment.
