Invitation Message for the 16th International Congress of Educating Cities – The Mayor of Andong City
I am Gi-chang Kwon, the newly elected Mayor of Andong City, inaugurated with a new political goal, “Great Citizens and New Andong City.”
As a member city of the International Association of Educating Cities(IAEC), which aims to spread and promote the concept of the city as the backbone of democracy and citizenship, it will be an honor to meet you in Andong.
I would like to express my gratitude to Ms. Ada Colau, Mayor of Barcelona and President of the IAEC, and all the mayors of the IAEC member cities, as well as Ms. Marina Canals, the IAEC Secretary-General, and the IAEC Secretariat staff who are helping a lot in preparation for the 16th IAEC International Congress of Educating Cities in Andong. I want to take this opportunity to thank you.
We look forward to meeting delegates from all 500 member cities in Andong, representing the East’s spiritual culture. We will do our best to prepare the 16th IAEC Congress to become a wonderful and memorable Congress in line with the theme of “Shaping the future of education” in Andong, a city of Korean beauty and traditional culture.
Lastly, I hope for the IAEC’s tremendous development and wish you and your family all the best and good health. Let’s meet in Andong in October.
