Others included the Korea National Park Service’s proposal for renovating the Tanzania Serengeti National Park promotion center, as well as the Korea Institute of Public Finance and Uplus IT’s proposal for reforming Peru’s taxation system and introducing an electronic taxation system.
The Korea Mine Rehabilitation and Mineral Resources Corporation and Sujung Engineering’s proposal for establishing a sustainable environment in Mongolia’s old mining regions, and the Seoul Housing and Communities Corporation, Intelligent Transport Systems Korea and UI Networks’s proposal for establishing a traffic management system in Lima, Peru have also been selected.
