At present, it is a crucial moment to redefine the role of Saemangeum as a future city development direction and a hub for new industries. It is necessary to diversify the center's functions in line with the changing conditions of Saemangeum, focusing on emerging sectors such as secondary batteries and renewable energy. This strategic move will not only generate high-quality employment opportunities but also contribute to the overall progress of the nation.

While the local population is experiencing a decline, there is a simultaneous increase in various tourism, leisure, recreational, and accommodation facilities. This raises concerns regarding their future utilization and management. To revive regions facing a decline in resident populations, it is essential to attract a "floating population". Achieving this objective calls for the expansion of captivating tourism content, robust place marketing efforts to position Saemangeum as a global city, and the strengthening of the visitor economy.

The infrastructure of Saemangeum, including tri-ports (airport, seaport, railway), should prioritize sustainability through the integration of green energy technologies and cutting-edge advancements. This convergence across multiple fields and functionalities is vital for establishing Saemangeum as a prominent destination preferred by global tourists, thus solidifying its position as a key player in the tourism industry.
