IOC QUESTIONNAIRE I. INTRODUCTION

Q 01 Introduction a. What is your principal motivation for hosting the Olympic Winter games? The promotion of peace on the Korean Peninsula : Korea is the only country in the world still divided by the Cold War. Gangwon Province, where Pyeongchang is located, is the only province in Korea separated by an armistice line. The 1988 Seoul Olympics served as an occasion to bring about harmony between the East and the West. Likewise, should the Olympic Winter Games, representing the Olympic spirit of harmony, be held in Pyeongchang in the first decade of the 21st century, it would contribute greatly to the promotion of peace on the Korean Peninsula and around the world.

The popularization of winter sports in Asia : By hosting the 21st Olympic Winter Games, Pyeongchang wishes to help popularize winter sports in the Asian region, where their popularity is still in the beginning stages but has considerable growth potential as a result of economic development in the region. The number of people enjoying winter sports in Korea is increasing quite rapidly in Asia. Furthermore, the number of visitors from Asian countries with mild climates has risen noticeably in recent years. During the 2001-2002 winter season, some 500,000 skiers from other Asian countries visited Pyeongchang, a 30-percent increase from the 20002001 season. The hosting of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang is certain to make Pyeongchang more appealing as a winter sports destination, leading to the further popularization and development of winter sports in Asia.

b. What would be the impact and legacy for City / Region of hosting the Olympic Winter games? A legacy of peace and unity : The preparation and hosting of the Olympics would promote peace and unity on the Korean Peninsula considerably. We believe this would be the most important legacy of the Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games, and ultimately the most lasting and worthwhile achievement of the Olympic Movement, which is based on the principle of promoting world peace and unity.

Growth as a center of winter sports in Asia : The Pyeongchang-Gangneung area, linking the sea and the mountains, is already acclaimed as the best year-round sports and tourism site in Korea. When the facilities are upgraded and the area publicized to the rest of the world in preparation for the Olympic Winter Games, Pyeongchang will become an important center of Asian winter sports, satisfying a growing demand among Asian nations. Pyeongchang is then very likely to see significant economic and cultural growth as well.

IOC QUESTIONNAIRE I. INTRODUCTION

Q 02 Concept a- Briefly describe your vision of the Olympic Winter Games in your City/Region? Pyeongchang, the applicant city for the 21st Winter Olympic Games, seeks to take advantage of the occasion to promote peace and reunification on the Korean Peninsula, and to foster world harmony by welcoming those countries, especially Asian nations, that find it difficult to participate fully in the games due to the barriers posed by their climates. Furthermore, Pyeongchang hopes to become a widely acclaimed center of winter sports in Asia and an exemplary Olympic host city.

Motivation behind the choice of location : Korea has taken part in every occasion of the Olympic Winter Games since the 5th games were held in 1948, with the exception of the 6th in 1952 due to the Korean War. Its history of participation in the Olympic Winter Games can be credited to Pyeongchang, the cradle of Korean winter sports. Located 750 meters above sea level, Pyeongchang fulfills all the requirements of a host for the Olympic Winter Games, including optimal climate conditions, first-rate facilities and accommodations, fast and safe high-speed transportation networks, and experience hosting a variety of international competitions.

Expected benefits : Pyeongchang will guarantee smooth operation of the games and optimum conditions for everyone, especially the athletes. Since Pyeongchang is located about two hours from Seoul, the capital of Korea, with a population of 10 million, the event would have great impact. In addition, Gangneung, a city with a population of 250,000 and the venue for numerous speed skating, figure skating and short track speed skating competitions, is a tourist destination frequented by more than 10 million visitors each year, ensuring that the facilities would be used for a variety of purposes after the Olympics. Wonju, a town with a population of 280,000 and just a one-hour drive from Seoul, is a popular venue for ice hockey competitions that will have no difficulty finding post-Olympic uses for the facilities.

Vision and planning project : In line with the 4th National Territorial Development Plan (2001-2020), the highest-level plan concerning Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province has been designated as an overall winter sports, tourism and leisure region. Additionally, in the Gangwon Province Comprehensive Plan (2001-2020) and the East-West Inland Resort and Industrial Belt Development Plan (2001-2020) the Pyeongchang area has been reserved as a winter sports center, and a variety of game and inter-regional transportation facilities are set for expansion in the event that it is selected to host the Olympic Winter Games. Finally, the aim of the Pyeongchang County Development Plan (2002-2020), the local plan of “Happy 700 Pyeongchang�, is to foster local economic development by encouraging winter sports and tourism through the expansion of recreation facilities and infrastructure. Therefore, these plans are completely in line with the plan to bring the Olympic Winter Games to Pyeongchang.

b- Provide a map of your City/Region on which your project is superimposd thus giving a complete visual overview of your project. Please refer to Attachment 1 (Map A) 2


IOC QUESTIONNAIRE I. INTRODUCTION

Q 03 Public Opinion a- What is the general public opinion in your City / Region and country towards your project of hosting the Olympic Winter Games? The people of Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province and Korea strongly support the city's bid to host the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Their support may be more passionate than that of residents of any past Olympic host city. According to a survey of Pyeongchang residents conducted from April 25-28, 2002, 96.8 percent of respondents approved of the bid for the Olympic Winter Games. Furthermore, in a telephone survey conducted by the Gangwon Social Research Institute in March 2001, 98 percent of respondents backed the proposal. Gallup Korea also carried out a survey targeting Korean citizens in March 2002, which showed that 91.8 percent of respondents favored hosting the Olympic Winter Games. Such fervent desire to host the Olympic Winter Games can be detected not only through public opinion surveys but also through the commitment shown by legislators. All nine National Assembly representatives from this region and 46 Provincial Council members, regardless of party affiliation, are taking part as committee consultants and members to bring the Olympic Winter Games to this area.

b-What opposition is there to your project? Very few residents of Pyeongchang, Gangwon Province and Korea oppose hosting the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and the reasons for their opposition are inconsequential. In the March Gallup poll, those who opposed hosting the Olympic Winter Games accounted for only 8.2 percent of respondents throughout the nation. They cited the economic burden as the main reason for their opposition, while only 0.3 percent of respondents were concerned about the environment. The influence of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) is far-reaching in today’s world, and Korea is no exception. However, in the case of Pyeongchang, many environmental groups have assumed direct and active roles in the plans related to the Olympic Winter Games, and have approved the idea of an environmentally friendly Olympic Winter Games. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that environmental concerns will arise.

IOC QUESTIONNAIRE II. POLITICAL SUPPORT

Q 05 Government support what is the status of support by the national, regional, local govornment and city authorities to your bid for Olympic Winter Games and to the organisation of the Olympic Winter Games in your City/Region? The national government of Korea held a Cabinet meeting Jan. 30, 2002, approving the bid for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and resolving to provide all necessary support. The national government will also form a special support council consisting of representation from all government ministries, and will provide all forms of governmental guarantees, commitments and administrative assistance necessary to ensure the Olympic Winter Games proceed in an effective and efficient manner. The applicant city of Pyeongchang and Gangwon Province are already fulfilling their duties and roles by moving to enact pertinent laws and regulations in cooperation with the national government. In the same context, the Pyeongchang County Council and the Gangwon Provincial Council have already established special support committees. Such resolutions and legislation at the national, provincial and local levels will be fully respected and legally binding despite the transfer of administrative powers in the upcoming elections.

Q 06 Legal Aspects a- Are there any legal obstacles to the organisation of the Olympic Winter Games in your country? None.

b- Do you envisage the implementation of any new laws to facilitate the organisation of the Olympic Winter Games? Should the 2010 Olympic Winter Games be awarded to Pyeongchang, the Korean National Assembly will enact special laws to provide any government-level assistance needed to ensure their success.

c- Are there any existing laws in your country in relation to sport? In 1983 Korea enacted the National Sports Promotion Law to support, nurture and protect all types of sports activities. This law is the basic framework that brought about the success of the 1988 Seoul Olympics and other international sporting events.

d- Are there any laws in your country, or other means, in order to combat doping in sport? Korea has yet to pass a specialized statute applicable only to sports, but sports participants are subject to general laws relating to the control of drugs. There is also a plan to set up an organization that furthers the objectives of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in the near future.

e- Have the relevant authorities in your country signed an agreement with the World Anti-Doping Agency(WADA)? Does your country currently apply anti-doping code? Korea is one of 17 WADA board members, serving two terms from 2000-2004 as an Asian representative. Therefore, Korea conducts yearly drug tests on all national athletes training in the Taeneung National High-Level Training Center, in line with WADA’s antidoping code, and actively upholds the spirit and principle of the fight against doping.

IOC QUESTIONNAIRE III. GENERAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Q 07 Transport Infrastructure By means of chart I, fill in the following : Pyeongchang already has an adequate transportation infrastructure to host the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. The existing four-lane express highway linking the Olympic Village and all venues, nearby Yangyang International Airport, completed in 2002, and the national railway system, scheduled for completion in 2009, will guarantee the seamless operation of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games through swift, safe, and convenient methods of transportation.

a- Existing transport infrastructure : Indicate your existing transport infrastructure: motorways and major urban arterial network, suburban rail, subway and light rail pubil transport system. The four-lane Yeongdong Express Highway (Express Highway 50), running between Gangneung and Seoul, extends across Wonju, Sungwoo Resort, Bokwang Phoenix Park, Pyeongchang and other potential Olympic sites and venues. Furthermore, two convenient and well-maintained national roads (National Roads 6 and 42) stretch across the same area. The four-lane Donghae Express Highway (Express Highway 65) and National Road 7 connect Yangyang International Airport and the city of Gangneung. Also, the four-lane Joongang Express Highway (Express Highway 55) provides a direct link between Wonju and the southern part of Korea.

b- Planned transport infrastructure : Indicate all transport infrastructure developments planned irrespective of your application but having a possible impact on Olympic site accessibility. The construction of a 150 km railway linking Wonju, Pyeongchang and Gangneung is under way, irrespective of the success of Pyeongchang's bid for the Olympic Winter Games. The master plan for the project was completed in 2000 and its completion is envisioned in 2009. Trains are already in operation between Seoul and Wonju. In tandem with the Yeongdong Express Highway, the railway system will put all sites and venues within an hour's distance from the Olympic Village. Furthermore, each of the the four roads that connect the Olympic venues and the Yeongdong Express Highway will be expanded from the current two lanes to four lanes by the year 2007. The construction of the railroad and the expansion of the road will result in a high-quality and efficient transportation network.

IOC QUESTIONNAIRE III. GENERAL INFRASTRUCTURE

Q 09 International Airport a- Which is the main international airport you intend to use for the Olympic Winter Games? State your reasons. During the Olympic Winter Games, the main gateways to Korea for international air transportation will be Incheon and Yangyang International Airport. As the cutting-edge airport in the Northeast Asian region and the main airport for the 2002 FIFA World Cup Finals, Incheon International Airport, which opened in March 2001, has the capacity to handle super-sized airplanes with 600 seats. About 30 million passengers use Incheon International Airport annually and 48 international airlines currently operate 215 routes, connecting 106 cities around the world. Opened in April of 2002, Yangyang International Airport is the closest to Pyeongchang and is equipped with a runway 2,500 meters long and 45 meters wide, a top-of-the-line air traffic control system, and state-of-the-art security facilities. The airport can accommodate A300-grade planes (270 seats) at present, but the runway will be extended to 3,200 meters by the year 2009 to service jet planes the size of a Boeing 747. Therefore, the airport will not be lacking in any respect for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Moreover, Yangyang International Airport is easily accessible from Incheon International Airport by air shuttle service, and is therefore convenient for travelers from all over the world. Distances from the Olympics Village to Incheon International Airport and Yangyang International Airport are 250 km and 71 km, respectively.

b- What is the current number of international gates and how many supplemental international gates will be provided at Games time? Incheon International Airport has 44 gates at present, but by the year 2010, it will have 100 gates and 300 international flights, giving it the capacity to process 74 million passengers per year. Yangyang International Airport had four gates as of April of 2002. The second phase of airport expansion will be completed before the year 2010 to increase the number of gates to eight.

Q 13 Sports Venues By means of Chart II, fill in the following : All facilities will be completed by 2008 and, from then to the time of the games, officially tested with a variety of international competitions and events. The plans will focus on ensuring the seamless operation of the games, as well as on finding diverse post-games uses for the facilities.

a- Existing sports venues: Indicate the existing sports venues which you expert will be used for the Olympic Winter Games. Specify their date of construction. There already exist three sizable skiing areas in the Pyeongchang Winter Sports Valley. These existing ski facilities will be used for the snow sports competitions. Slalom and giant slalom competitions will take place on the FIS-approved Rainbow Course at Yongpyong Resort (opened in 1975), where the 1998 Yongpyong FIS Alpine World Cup took place. Cross-country skiing, ski jumping and biathlon events will be held at the Yongpyong Provincial Nordic Field (opened in 1998). Taking advantage of the two slopes already in use, the city will hold the freestyle skiing competitions on two existing slopes at the Bokwang Phoenix Park (opened in 1995) and stage snowboarding competitions at the Sungwoo Resort. Curling competitions are to take place at an existing indoor ice rink in Yongpyong, which was used for the 1999 Winter Asian Games.

b- Planned sport venues: Indicate the sports venues already planned irrespective of your bid application for the Olympic Winter Games which will be used for Olympic competition.

A convention center currently being planned by the city of Gangneung in line with international standards will be the venue for speed skating competitions when it is completed in 2008. Additionally, an indoor skating rink in Chuncheon to be completed in 2008 with financial assistance from the Gangwon provincial government and the national government, is also available. Chuncheon, the cradle of ice skating in Korea and the capital of Gangwon Province, is only 70 km away from Seoul, the capital of Korea. Furthermore, an indoor ice rink for figure skating and short track speed skating competitions will be set up in a multipurpose indoor stadium, due to be complete by the year 2008 with financial assistance from the national government and Gangwon Province. Men’s ice hockey games will be held in the Chiak Gymnasium (opened in 1988), which will be rebuilt by the city of Wonju with financial assistance from the national government and Gangwon Province. Funding from the same sources will help Wonju build a stadium for women’s ice hockey by the year 2008. Gangwon Province will use public funds to build venues for downhill skiing and super giant slalom competitions in Jungbong area by 2008.

c- Addtional sports venues: List the additional sports venues you feel will be necessary to host the Olympic Winter Games. The national government will assist Gangwon Province with the cost of construction of venues for bobsleigh, luge and skeleton competitions at the Sungwoo Resort by 2008.

IOC QUESTIONNAIRE IV. SPORTS VENUES

Q 15 Olympic and Media Villages a- Describe your concept for the athletes and media villages, as will as your plans for their post-Olympic use. The Olympic Village will be set up in such a way as to improve the competitiveness of participants by making their stay convenient and comfortable and helping them prepare for the competitions. The Olympic Village will be located close to the main stadium and major venues with easy access to transportation and, at the same time, will offer high security. The Media Village will be situated in the middle of the venues to allow accurate and up-to-date coverage of the games. The Media Village will be easily accessible by shuttle buses, and only 10 minutes away from the Main Press Center and the International Broadcasting Center. Under this basic framework, the Olympic Village will be composed of 2,500 easy-tomaintain rooms out of 3,700 rooms (including the rooms under construction) in the Yongpyoung resort complex. Participants in the Paralympic Winter Games will stay in 500 rooms, which will be built in compliance with international standards of accessibility to people with disabilities. The Media Village will be set up at existing lodging facilities, including four- and five-star hotels located in Pyeongchang and Gangneung. Most of the Olympic and media villages in Pyeongchang will be set up at existing facilities so they can resume their original functions after the games. The newly built facilities will also be put to good use as lodging facilities after the games.

b- Specify how and by whom the athletes and media villages will be financed. There is no need to secure new financing, since the facilities for the Olympic and media villages are already in use. Interior renovation requires additional financing, but it amounts to very little and will be borne by the owners. Private developers, who will run the establishments after the games, will also finance the new lodging facilities.

Q 17 Transport Please complete Chart IV. Indicate all distances by the most appropriate bus route in km. If a rail connection is available, add in parentheses(rail) for the appropriate connection. The greatest advantage of awarding the games to Pyeongchang is that the Olympic Village and all venues are accessible by four-lane expressway with a sufficient transport capacity and can be reached in less than one hour, since all are located within a 5-20 minute drive from the expressway exit. Scheduled for completion in the year 2009 according to the national government's plan, the railway between Gangneung and Wonju will safely transport all Olympic family members, including spectators, under any circumstances. The railway system will take people from the Olympic Village to Gangneung and Wonju in just 20 and 50 minutes, respectively. The railroad will become an important means of transportation for a large number of spectators from the Seoul metropolitan area. Except for the venues for Ice hockey, bobsleigh, luge and snowboarding, all venues are located within 50 km of the Olympic Village and can be reached in 30 minutes by shuttle bus. Wonju's Ice Hockey rink is situated 98 km away from the Olympic Village but takes only one hour by shuttle bus and 50 minutes by train. The speed skating venue in Gangneung is 45 km, or 25 minutes' distance, from the Olympic Village. The Sungwoo Resort, where bobsleigh, luge and snowboarding competitions will take place, is 69 km away from the Olympic Village, but the trip is only about 45 minutes by shuttle bus. Expressways link all segments between the main airport -- Yangyang International Airport -- and the Olympic Village. The distance between the two points is approximately 71 km, taking about 45 minutes by ground transportation. Shuttle planes taking only 30 minutes will also be operated between Incheon and Yangyang international airports.

IOC QUESTIONNAIRE V. FINANCING

Q 21 Goverment Contributions How will your Games budget be structured(Private and/or public financing)? What financial commitments have you obtained from your national, regional or local govornment and City authorities? The national government of Korea and the regional governments of Gangwon Province and Pyeongchang County will provide the financial assistance needed to host the Olympic Winter Games successfully. On Jan. 30, 2002, the national government of Korea decided to assist with the expenses of hosting the 2010 Olympic Winter Games from the national treasury. Based on the past experience of the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the national government is expected to bear 50 percent of the public project costs. Furthermore, the government of Gangwon Province and the Gangwon Provincial Council also have decided to provide financial assistance for expenses associated with the hosting of the Olympic Winter Games. The regional government of Pyeongchang County and the Pyeongchang County Council also resolved to assume the cost of hosting the event. In addition, the city governments of Gangneung and Wonju, the venues of ice sports competitions, will partially finance the construction of ice rinks.

Q 22 OCOG Revenue-generating Potential In addition to the TV revenues and TOP revenues you will receive from the IOC, what other revenue do you expect to be able to generate? Please indicate source and estimated amount. We are accumulating the expertise needed for steady revenue generation through the experience gained during the 1988 Seoul Olympics, the 2002 FIFA World Cup Finals and other international competitions. For the Olympic Winter Games, we will employ very conservative and stable means of generating revenue, such as local sponsorship, licensing, official suppliers, Olympic coins, donations, lotteries and ticket sales. The Organizing Committee of Olympic Games (OCOG) will secure local sponsorship from 10 to 15 large domestic corporations, receiving financial support and technological services worth $120 million. It will also earn $30 million through licensing and $20 million in revenues from official sponsors via official suppliers. The Ministry of Finance and Economy of Korea, the Bank of Korea and the Korea Mint Corporation will jointly issue Olympic coins valued at $5 million. The OCOG expects to generate revenues of $23 million by introducing "2010 Winter Olympic Lotteries," beginning five years prior to the Olympic Winter Games, and, by conservative estimates, earn $90 million by selling 1.8 million tickets. Since Pyeongchang is just two hours by express highway and railway from Seoul, which has a population of 10 million, such estimates are deemed quite reliable. On top of these projections, about $10 million in additional revenue is expected to be generated in the form of donations from private companies, social organizations, public nonprofit organizations and individuals. The OCOG anticipates $290 million in revenue through a variety of sources.
