Seoul Conferred Honorary Citizenship of 2014 to 16 People

Seoul Honarary Citizenship Ceremony 2014

The Seoul Metropolitan Government designated 16 foreigners from 7 countries to be the 2014 honorary citizens of Seoul, and held a conferment ceremony of citizenship on October 28 (Tue) at Sejong Hall, located in the Sejong Center. It was attended by 150 people including recipients of the award from this year and years past residing both Korea and overseas and foreign diplomatic envoys to Korea.

 

The honorary citizenship of Seoul is the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s means of expressing Seoul’s appreciation toward foreigners who have contributed to ensuring the city develops and claims its position as a global city with wide-scale international exchange. As means of building friendly partnerships with foreign countries, it is also conferred to chiefs of state and diplomatic envoys who travel to Korea. This program has conferred the citizenship by selecting beneficiaries annually since 1958.

 

This year’s honorary citizens include those who contribute in a variety of fields including foreign investment promotion, public order and security, volunteer service, tourism marketing, and job creation. Among them Jeffrey D. Jones, an American lawyer serving as a member of the Seoul International Business Advisory Council (SIBAC) and as the Vice Chairman of the Foreign Investment Advisory Council (FIAC), has provided a wide range of advice about encouraging the investment of foreign companies in South Korea. Another recipient, Ibraheem Abdul Ganiyi, is a member of the Foreign Affairs Police Advisory Committee of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency, and the Foreign Crime Prevention Committee of the Yongsan Police Station. In this role he is in charge of advice for public order policies concerning foreigners.

 

So far a total of 712 foreigners from 92 countries have been conferred this honorary citizenship, including famous Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan (1999), Dutch football team manager Guus Hiddink (2002), and former American football player Hines Edward Ward, Jr. (2006).
