As a part of the 60th commemorative ceremony of the Korean War on 2010, the Minister of the MPVA, Kim Yang will increase the number of participants in the Revisit Korea Program. Also, MPVA plans to hold various ceremonies in blood alliance countries.

On July 22nd, the Minister of the MPVA, Kim Yang reported the plan for the Revisit Korea Program at the 2nd conference of the Presidential Council on National Branding.

For upcoming 60th anniversary of the Korean War, MPVA will invite more veterans than ever before in consideration of their limited chances of revisiting South Korea (Their median age is 79.4 years). Furthermore, MPVA will hold ceremonies to honor the Korean War veterans abroad through cooperation with 38 embassies and legations of the 21 UN Allies of the Korean War.

* Plan to inviting 3 thousand people in 2010 (7 hundred people in 2009)

* During 1975 to 2008, 25 thousand people visited South Korea again

Moreover, the government will support the descendants of the war veterans by assisting job-seeking in and out of the country and providing their admission scholarship for the domestic universities in cooperation with the relevant authorities and related companies. Also, the government will hold the Youth Peace Camp so that South Korean university students can build friendship with the descendants of the Korean War veterans.
