Mayor Lee Jang-woo has achieved an outstanding achievement and responsibility with his role on the UCLG Leadership Board


Daejeon 2022 UCLG World Congress has concluded with great success and created various chances for both South Korea and other countries in general. Many agreements were reached and the cultural exchange experience generated by this event was priceless. Most notably, after the World Congress ended, the leaders of United Cities and Local Governments continued to discuss and came to an agreement on the "Pact for the Future", which ensures the livelihood of people, the growth of governments and the safety of the planet.

Following the UCLG World Congress and World Summit of Local and Regional Leaders held in Daejeon in October 2022, the UCLG leadership came to an agreement to develop a collegial Presidency, with a rotating President for a mandate of one year. With this mechanism, UCLG is assured to have both diversity and objectivity for its future operation.

Daejeon Mayor Lee Jang-woo will hold the presidency in year 4: from the end of 2025 to the 8th UCLG Congress at the end of 2026. With his current vision for Daejeon as well as UCLG operations, it is highly expected of he to have a successful term as its President.
