Stork politics


Lawmakers meet Wednesday at the National Assembly in Yeouido-dong, western Seoul, to hold their first general meeting of “Agenda 2050,” a supra-partisan committee under the 20th National Assembly purposed to tackle Korea’s low birth rate through economic policy adjustments. The new committee, made up of 12 lawmakers - five from the Saenuri Party, three from the Minjoo Party of Korea, three from the People’s Party and one independent - will soon officially launch with a focus on five key subjects: education, employment, welfare, administration and taxation. The main goals include “to develop a national welfare system that corresponds with a fast-evolving employment pattern” and “to reinforce the social security and flexibility of education and employment,” the group said in a statement. Key lawmakers are Minjoo Rep. Kim Chong-in, Saenuri Rep. Kim Se-yeon and People’s Party Rep. Kim Sung-sik, among others. [PARK JONG-GEUN]
