Gyeonggi Province

Gyeonggi-do (Hangul: 경기도, Korean pronunciation: [kjʌŋ.ɡi.do]) is the most populous province in South Korea. Its name, Gyeonggi means "the area surrounding the capital". Thus, Gyeonggi-do can be translated as "Province surrounding Seoul". The provincial capital of Gyeonggi-do is Suwon. Seoul is South Korea's largest city and national capital. It is in the heart of the Province but has been separately administered as a provincial-level special city since 1946. Incheon is South Korea's third largest city, is on the coast of the Province and has been similarly administered as a provincial-level metropolitan city since 1981. The three jurisdictions collectively cover 11,730 km2, with a combined population of 25.6 million amounting to over half of the entire population of South Korea.

Gyeonggi-do has supported the development of the Korea Marine Leisure Industry as Host of the Korea International Boat show since 2008. Gyeonggi Bay will form the hub of the best yachting and boating location with Jebu Marina adding another 300 berths to provide the largest and best equipped combined facilities in Korea. Gyeonggi-do continues to support the development of the Korea Marine Leisure Industry through a central government plan to construct 3 additional new marinas to provide a further 1,100 berths in Gyeonggi Bay.
