Mayor of Jinju Kyoo Il Jo
Thank you for your love of Korean pears. I am Kyoo Il Jo, the Mayor of Jinju, Gyeongsangnam-do,
Republic of Korea.
Firstly, I thank everyone who cherishes the pears produced in our hometown, Jinju, renowned for its
representative and exquisite taste in South Korea.
The Jinju pears that enrich your dietary life result from continuous efforts and passion from
researchers, farmers, and academics against clean water flowing from Mt. Jiri and the fertile soil
along the Nam River.
Our city of Jinju will continue to exert effort to produce the finest pears and supply them to you. We
hope for your continued love and support.
