Seoul: The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (POCOG) held its 10th General Assembly in downtown Seoul, and officially approved the appointment of Cho Yang-ho, chairman of Hanjin Group, as its new president. During a short media briefing session, Cho said, “The PyeongChang 2018 Games is a historic project, which will present a more developed Korea to the world. I’ll devote myself to organizing a successful Games, using my knowledge and experience as head of PyeongChang 2018’s bid committee.”

Cho was the head of the bid committee when PyeongChang was awarded the games three years ago in Durban.

Cho’s appointment is set to be finalized after approval by the Culture, Sports and Tourism Ministry.
