Bangkok (dpa) - The chief organizer of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, resigned from his post Tuesday, a news report said.

Cho Yang Ho said in a statement that he needed to devote more time to his corporate responsibilities as chairman of the South Korean conglomerate Hanjin Group, Yonhap News Agency reported.

Hanjin Shipping, part of the conglomerate and the nation‘s largest container carrier, is dealing with heavy losses, the report said.

Cho‘s resignation came less than two years before the start of the Winter Games. He had taken over the Pyeongchang committee in 2014 and was near the end of his two-year term, the report said.
