President Moon Jae-in, who visited the flood damage site yesterday (12th), instructed to designate special disaster areas by subdividing them into towns, villages, and dongs rather than cities, counties, and districts to enable quick and customized responses by region. The government and the ruling party have decided to double some of the subsidies for disaster disasters such as housing flooding.

This is Park Ha-jung.


Following the Hwagae Marketplace in Hadong, Gyeongsangnam-do, Mayor of Gurye, Jeollanam-do, and Byeongcheoncheon Stream in Cheonan, Chungcheongnam-do, President Moon Jae-in visited the flood damage sites in Yeongnam, Honam, and Chungcheong.

[President Moon Jae-in: Even if you don't calculate the amount of damage, you can see that it meets the requirements of a special disaster zone just by looking at it with your own eyes. We will do our best to be designated as soon as possible.]

When selecting a special disaster area that can relieve the burden of local governments through government funding, President Moon considered designating it in eup/myeon/dong units rather than city/gun units. "Do it."

It is interpreted as the meaning of promptly responding customized to each region.

It is highly likely that some of the 11 areas that the government has completed its first damage investigation will be designated as special disaster areas this week.

Prior to this, the party government decided to increase the disaster support fund.

The subsidies for victims of flood damage doubled from 10 million won to 20 million won, and home flooding has doubled from 1 million won to 2 million won.

However, the preparation of the 4th additional budget plan has been reserved.

[Kang Hoon-sik/Deuteronomy Democratic Party Chief Spokesperson: We understand that it will take about 500 billion won (to recover the damage). (For now) I think it will be possible with the budget so far, but I don't know what will happen in the future, so I'll judge them later... .] As

the reserve costs of the central and local governments all remain around 5 trillion won, it can be covered without additional expenses.
