In order to maintain the spirit of the millennial kingdom, 'Silla' in the Korean peninsula and let the world know about Gyeongsangbuk-do’s identity by shedding new light on Silla culture, which is the matrix of Korean culture, Gyeongsangbuk-do province has implemented ‘Korea Silk Road Project’.

‘Korea Silk Road Project’ provided academic and historical review of Silla culture, while establishing the study of Korean Silk Road through global network.

Gyeongsangbuk-do will sign Memorandum of Understanding(MOU) or Letter of Intent(LOI) with major provinces and cities of Silk Road countries, including Shaanxi and Gansusheng of China and Tashkent of Uzbekistan.

Gyeongsangbuk-do sends ‘Korea Silk Road Expedition’, runs a homepage for Korea Silk Road(http://ksilkroad.com) and cooperates with international organizations related to Silk Road.
