The 2018 Winter Olympics will be held on February 9, 2018, in Pyeongchang, Korea. KAARI requested the State of Rhode Island to designate the month of February 2018 as "PyeongChang South Korea, Winter Olympics Games Month". On February 6, the State of Rhode Island Senate passed the resolution (Senate Resolution 18R-50) and delivered it to Thomas Bach, Chairman of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Four RI state senators James Sheehan, Leonidas Rapkakis, James Seveney, Cindy Coyne promoted the Declaration, which was unanimously passed by the Rhode Island Senate.

New Boston Consul General Yonghyun Kim visited the Senate Chamber of Rhode Island to congratulate the PyeongChang Olympic Declaration and thank the senators.
