Specifically, the city of Busan emphasized that the Gadeok New Airport must be opened early to attract the success of the 2030 Busan World Expo and to secure new growth engines in the southern region. Recently, at the 'Maritime Smart City Forum', in which the best domestic and foreign experts participated, Mayor Park Hyung-joon prepared a plan to build a maritime airport that combines the reclamation and floating method of Gadeok Island for the early opening of Gadeok New Airport, and officially proposed it to the Minister. The city expects that an eco-friendly and safe new airport can be built early if the construction method combining reclamation and floating is reflected in MOLIT's 'Gadeok New Airport Basic Plan Establishment Service', which will be held until August next year.
Subsequently, the city requested the addition of 1 million pyeong of the total amount of the green belt (GB) in Busan for the growth of important regional hub cities. Currently, the total amount of Green Belt (GB) lifted in Busan is 66.21㎢, and the remaining amount is very insufficient considering the existing projects and pending projects in progress, which acts as a stumbling block hindering the healthy growth of the city.

Regarding Busan City's proposal, MOLIT Minister Won Hee-ryong said, "We will advance the start of construction through early compensation for the new airport on Gadeok Island and actively review new construction methods, and we will come up with a plan to improve the GB system by the first half of next year."
In addition, the Busan-Yangsan-Ulsan metropolitan railway promised to complete the SATA investigation by the end of 2023, review the plan to be operated by the state, and support the 2nd Centum access road. In addition, the Ministers of the Organization for Railway Cooperation (OSJD) will be held in Busan in 2023 to contribute to the bid for Expo 2030.
Busan Mayor Park Hyung-joon said, “The cooperation meeting and mutual cooperation agreement held today will be the nourishment of the ‘Bu-Ul-Gyeong transregional economic alliance’.” We will work hard to realize 'Busan, the city where you want to live even if you are born again' by wisely solving the following issues.”
