Construction 'complete' on PyeongChang 2018 facilities Updated: 2017-11-06 12:03:18 KST


On Saturday, the PyeongChang 2018 Organizing Committee announced that building work is done on the stadiums and other facilities.
The committee says that 99.7 percent of the construction work is complete, and the finishing touches will be complete by next month.
After a tape-cutting ceremony, the governor of Gangwon-do Province, Choi Moon-soon, said they just need to work on a few details like management and transportation.

As the Olympic torch began its tour around the nation last week, a range of cultural programs are slated to take place in the run-up to and during the PyeongChang Winter Olympics.
Those include fireworks festivals and K-pop concerts in the cities of Wonju, Chuncheon and the event's co-host city Gangneung, as part of efforts to offer visitors more culturally diverse and unique experiences.
Gangwon Province also said earlier it will establish 13 additional tourist centers and check the service conditions of 300 restaurants and lodging facilities by the end of this year to accommodate PyeongChang visitors.
In another move to welcome the huge influx of visitors, Incheon International Airport Corporation announced on Sunday that it will officially open its Passenger Terminal 2 on January 18th, three weeks before the Olympics kick off.
The nation's transportation ministry said that the early date was chosen so the Olympic athletes can come into Korea and and get used to the environment before the athlete's village opens on January 30th.
