From the end of this month, the government will sequentially distribute consumption coupons in the fields of dining out, exhibitions, and tourism to more than 10 million people.
It means that we will prepare a foothold to save domestic demand, which has been broken amid the corona 19 spread-lull-re-proliferation link, at least within this year.
However, many of the measures to revitalize consumption will be accompanied by strong quarantine measures, as it can create a vulnerable situation for Corona 19 by increasing confrontation among the people.
According to the Ministry of Strategy and Finance and the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, as of the end of this month, the government is finalizing plans to implement measures to revitalize domestic demand, such as 8 major consumption coupons.
Initially, the government tried to hold consumption coupons, various tourist events, and consumption events as a relay starting in August.
However, after the 8/15 Liberation Day rally, as Corona 19 spread throughout the country, mainly in the metropolitan area, consumption coupons were stopped without even starting.
The 8 major consumption coupons refer to coupons in the fields of accommodation, tourism, performances, movies, exhibitions, sports, dining out, and agricultural and marine products.
In the case of accommodation, a discount of 30,000 to 40,000 won for reservation and payment, 40% for charter and 8,000 won per person for performances.
For dining out, if you pay with a credit card of 20,000 won or more, 10,000 won will be refunded at the following restaurant.
Accommodation and movie coupons started before the re-proliferation of Corona 19 and stopped after some digestion.
Agricultural and marine products coupons are available for non-face-to-face consumption, so they were continuously executed even in the situation of re-proliferation of Corona 19.
Considering this, most consumption coupons such as tourism, performances, exhibitions, sports, and dining out are distributed for the first time from the end of this month.
Given the scale of execution, it is estimated that at least 10 million people can benefit from these coupons.
However, as various events or events can serve as an opportunity to re-proliferate Corona 19, the government is struggling with corresponding quarantine measures.
Once the event is carried out with quarantine measures, the policy is to stop the event at any time if Corona 19 re-proliferates.
