As of late December, foreign ownership of land in Chungcheongbuk-do (Province) rose 4.7 percent on-year to 13.578 million square meter from 12.294 million square meter a year earlier, according to the province Friday.

Last year, foreigners and foreign corporations acquired 766,000 square meter-land (262 contracts) and disposed 182,000 square meter-land (127).
Of the foreign ownership, 9.396 million square meter, 2.335 million square meter and 1.261 square meter-areas are owned by overseas Koreans, foreign corporations and foreigners, respectively.
