Local traditional markets and small business owners have been badly impacted by COVID-19. But the national emergency relief funding is loosening consumer purse strings a bit. Spending has been boosted. Mike Laidman reports. Jeju’s traditional markets, which have remained mostly dead for some months due to COVID-19, are now finally starting to see increasing resident and tourist shoppers. The number of visitors to (동문) Dongmun Traditional Market dropped to 2,000 a day right after COVID-19 hit the nation. That number has recently grown to 5,000. With social distancing campaigns having been relaxed and national disaster relief funds paid, consumption is slowly starting to grow. The volume of parcel orders is growing, too. Among these orders, fish, which means that those responsible for deliveries are also stepping up their game. According to the Ministry of SMEs and Startups, sales at traditional markets in Jeju were still down 68 percent of their usual numbers last week, but were already up an astounding 27% - down only 41% from their usual levels - this week. Sales at small businesses had dropped by 57% of their usual levels, with that drop growing to only 38% down recently. For the first time in months, Jeju store owners and market vendors are seeing some good news, with more money slowly starting to circulate. The increased physical presence of people all around the island is a direct sign that the knockout punch that COVID-19 delivered to the local market was not just that, and now things are once again moving in a positive direction.

  • Governor Won expresses interest to run for president
  • 1. Governor Won expresses interest to run for president Won shows intention to participate in primary election Jeju Governor Won Hee-ryong has expressed his intention to run for the office of the presidency, stating that the 2022 presidential election will be a significant turning point for the nation, and consequently he will have to risk everything. In a recent interview with the central daily newspaper, Governor Won said that when the Moon Jae-in regime came to power, pledging to settle all the accumulated corruption of the previous regime, there were inherent limitations in their party’s ideology to enact change. Therefore, the moderate/conservatives could win the presidential election in two years if they are able to innovate rigorously. He left open the possibility of participation in the elections by saying that there will be a primary election to elect a single candidate from the moderate/conservative party, and that he does not have to resign from his current Jeju governor's post even if he participates in the primary elections. 1. 원 지사, 대선 도전 의지…"중도·보수 경선 참여" 원희룡 제주도지사가 2022년 대선이 국가 운명의 분수령이 될 것이기 때문에 모든 것을 걸고 자신을 던져야 한다는 고민을 하고 있다며 대선 도전 의지를 내비쳤습니다. 원 지사는 최근 중앙 일간지와 가진 인터뷰를 통해 문재인 정권이 적폐 청산을 내걸고 집권했지만 이념 세력으로서 본질적인 한계를 드러내고 있다며 중도.보수진영이 치열하게 혁신하면 2년 후 대선에서 이길 수 있다고 말했습니다. 그러면서 중도.보수 진영의 단일 후보를 선출하기 위한 경선이 있을 것으로 예상된다며 경선에 참여해도 제주도지사직에서 물러날 필요는 없다고 말해 참여 가능성을 열어뒀습니다.

  • Won's Election Promises Highly Fulfilled
  • Governor Won Heeryong's provincial administration has been rated highly in its fulfillment of election promises. A closer examination of fulfilled campaign pledges reveals funding was secured stably. Joseph Kim reports. The Won administration determined 115 election promises two years ago when he took office. The promises are presumed to require 4.9 trillion won over four years during his tenure. His office planned to secure funds to fulfill the promises. At his half way point, how many promises have been fulfilled? The Korea Manifesto Center gives the SA grade, the highest grade, to Seoul, Gwangju, Gyeonggi, South Chungcheong Province and Jeju. The center has analyzed Won's campaign pledges and announced that 52 promises have been completed or are being carried out among 115 pledges made. A completely fulfilled promise is introducing a competency evaluation system for the casino industry. Won's priority promise is to create 10,000 jobs for youth in the public sector. 1,380 were newly employed in 2018 and 2,132 were hired last year. His office is gradually reaching the goal. The Jeju Employment and Startup Support Center opened in September of last year and is on the right track. Won's office is expanding the number of items subjected to the crop price stabilization system to ensure local farmers earn a stable income. The Korea Manifesto Center has also analyzed financing and announced that the office is evaluated to be able to fulfill Won's election promises financially. As of December 2019, 2.43 trillion won was secured for carrying out the promises. This means the financing rate was 49.7 percent, which is 2 percentage points higher than the national average. Meanwhile, six promises including the creation of the North-east environmental capital, competitiveness sharpening in the taxi industry and improvement of labor conditions for nurses are categorized as unsatisfactory. But there have been no election promises suspended or scrapped until now. Joseph Kim, KCTV
