The chief organizer of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea resigned Tuesday less than two years before the Games begin, citing urgent problems with his troubled shipping business.

Cho Yang-ho, the chairman of Hanjin Group and Korean Air, resigned with immediate effect due to the "critical financial issues" facing Hanjin Shipping Rui Patricio World Cup Jersey , the Pyeongchang 2018 organizing committee said in a statement.

The statement said former trade minister Lee Hee-beom had been nominated as a replacement, with a formal vote to ratify his appointment expected soon.

Hanjin Shipping - the South's top container carrier - applied for a debt restructuring plan last week to avoid bankruptcy after reporting mounting losses stemming from slowing demand in China.

Cho took over as president of the Games organizing committee in August 2014, when the event was struggling with construction delays and significant funding problems.

Things got so bad at one point that the International Olympic Committee (IOC) floated the possibility of moving some events to other countries such as Japan.

The South Korean tycoon, who initially signed up for a two-year term Ricardo Quaresma World Cup Jersey , was widely credited with turning the situation around and bringing in big-name sponsorship, including some of South Korea's largest conglomerates like Samsung and Lotte Group.

The organizing committee recently said it had reached 70 percent of its funding goals.

The first test events held in February were largely successful, although the IOC's Coordination Commission Chairman Gunilla Lindberg said the workload would "soon increase dramatically" with two dozen test events scheduled for the next winter sports season.

Nominating Lee as the new organizing committee head suggests a renewed focus on the financial side of the Games.

Unlike Cho, who led Pyeongchang's successful bid for the Games and is a former vice president of the Asian Table Tennis Union Ricardo Carvalho World Cup Jersey , Lee has no experience of sports administration.

However, his connections as a former trade minister could help fill the remaining sponsorship gap.

"We expect his wide range of experience will help us with the final push for venue construction and Olympic operational preparations," the committee said. "As a former bureaucrat with expertise in economics, he will also contribute to a frugal Olympics through efficient execution and management of the budget."

China encourages its enterprises to participate in the infrastructure construction for these routes and conduct commercial trial voyages in accordance with the law to pave the way for their commercial and regularized operation Rafa Silva World Cup Jersey , said the document.
