In order to make a personal inspection of the project's progress, members of the Policy Committee within the Korean National Assembly—in charge of following up on the budget and the progress of large research projects—visited the ITER worksite on Monday 9 January. Delegation members Yang Jong Oh, Sim Yeon Mi, Kim Beommo, Lee Jae Yoon and Gim In-Ho were accompanied by the head of the ITER Korean Domestic Agency, Kijung Jung.

After a tour around the construction site, which they qualified as "impressive," the delegates were welcomed by ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima for a presentation of current status and the recently implemented management procedures that aim to ensure that the project remains within the given time and cost framework.
