JEJU province in South Korea donated 1,000 boxes of bottled water to the Saipan mayor’s office on Thursday.

“They want to support the CNMI in its campaign to prevent Covid-19 transmission,” said Hoon Ahn, president of Young’s Wholesale, the exclusive distributor of Jeju SamDaSoo, a mineral water produced by the Jeju Province Development Corp.

Ahn noted that Jeju SamDaSoon bottled water is sold cheaper on Saipan than in South Korea because of reduced CNMI government fees.

As for the donated boxes of bottled water, he said his company paid for the shipping cost,.

Mayor David M. Apatang said his office will distribute the bottled water to the Covid-19 front liners in the CNMI, including the Division of Customs and the quarantine office.

“It’s a good gesture on the part of Young’s Wholesale and the Jeju province,” the mayor added.

The mayor thanked all the businesses on Saipan, especially  Young’s Wholesale, for their continued support and partnership with the CNMI government.

Young’s Wholesale started its business on Saipan in 1990, Ahn said, adding that he took over its operations in 2004.

“Our total sales are down right now, but we are surviving,” he said. He noted that other companies, especially those in the  tourism industry, have “gone down a lot.”

He said his company has stopped delivering supplies to major stores on Saipan that cater to tourists.
