▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: You are a person who is getting attention in the political arena these days.

Kim Dong-yeon, Governor of Gyeonggi-do


▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Hello?

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: It's almost 100 days since I took office.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: The day after tomorrow is 100 days.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: How was the last 100 days?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: In short, it was a very busy 100 days with a very busy body and a very rewarding mind. I would like to say this.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Because I didn't remember the inauguration ceremony, because I couldn't.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: At that time, I took office on July 1st, but there was a torrential rain at that time, so I canceled it just before and then went to the disaster safety situation room and spent the first day looking for safety measures such as rain damage.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: Damage from the rain We often report intensively on broadcasters or other places when there is torrential rain, but after a few days, the report disappears.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: That's right.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: But actually, the damage and the wounds of those who have been harmed don't go on?

To what extent do you think it has been restored now?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: Much of it has now been restored.

I went to the site immediately after I was harmed. Because I lived a difficult life as a child, I lived in a house that was flooded with water when it rained, and I had a lot of water with my mother and grandmother. There are things that can be done right away, and some fundamental measures are needed.

For example, in the case of Mokgamcheon Stream in Gwangmyeong, there is a small bridge called Kogi Bridge between Seongnam and the thought of creating a reservoir.

It was always overflowing, but when I went there, I realized that I had to dredge to let the water flow.

So, for those things, I took various measures so that I could take action in a short time, so I did some recovery on my own, but there are still people who are having a hard time, so I'm still paying attention.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: I think it is difficult for humans to overcome nature even if we are prepared.

However, every effort must be made to minimize damage. This is quite natural.

That responsibility rests with the regional head of the group.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: It is most important to take preventive measures first.

When I went to the scene and met, I comforted and shared my heart with the people I met, and when I took immediate measures like this, the victims shared sympathy with them saying, 'Are you busy and you came all the way here?' I felt anew about my mission to make life-close changes with our residents, which I had never been able to do.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: How many schedules do you have a day?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: If the daily schedule includes internal reports, there are always more than 10.

External schedules are also very busy, with at least 2-3 meetings and meeting 7-8 schedules.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: How does it compare to when you were the Deputy Prime Minister of Economy?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: When I was the Deputy Prime Minister of Economy, I was rewarded and worked to my heart's content.

However, I was mainly working on the big discourse on the entire economy of the Republic of Korea, but now that I became the governor of Gyeonggi-do, there was a lot of difference in that I could make changes in the lives of residents and closely related to their lives.

In a sense, the macro aspect of the big discourse, the Gyeonggi governor was small, but it was worthwhile in the micro part that could change the lives of the residents. are performing.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Many of you may think that the last local election has already been a long time coming, but was the Gyeonggi governor election not the best battleground?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Isn’t it new?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: It was a new Seung-seung and I was lucky.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: To Eun-Hye Kim, Senior Public Relations Officer.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: Yes, in the exit poll, I was found to be slightly losing, but I was losing until 5 am, and then around 5:30, I turned around, and I was lucky in many ways.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: Of course, you must have been happy because you won, but I am currently serving as the governor of Gyeonggi, so I think there is a clear meaning behind that vote.

What did you think?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: It was a very difficult election for us.

Democrats lost a lot of local elections.

I also thought that there would be no competition between people and policies, but in that wind, Gyeonggi-do residents chose me for the economy or people’s livelihood, as well as people who will work properly to improve the quality of life of Gyeonggi-do residents, and people who can truly communicate. I am humbly accepting it, thinking that I have chosen someone who has it.

It is my duty to do my best not to go against that will and to work for Gyeonggi-do and Gyeonggi-do citizens without self-interest.

And I expressed that the promises I made are a debt I owe to our citizens.

I am now in debt and thinking that I should pay off each debt one by one.

Enlarging an image

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: The president is like that, but in fact, it will probably not be easy for the heads of regional organizations, the governors, the mayors of metropolitan cities, and the mayor of Seoul to fulfill all those promises.

As I have been working for the past 100 days, this is the only promise I have made to the citizens of Gyeonggi-do.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

When I organize my promises, it goes from 300 to 400 depending on the number, so I thought about what to prioritize now while organizing them.

If I were to talk about individual projects, there would be several of them, but if I were to put it in one word, I would make Gyeonggi-do the capital of opportunity.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Capital of opportunity?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

So, we, Gyeonggi-do residents, will definitely create a special opportunity that is different from other provinces.

We will create equal opportunities.

The shape of the opportunity could be any economic opportunity.

In addition, it may be an opportunity for self-development for young people, and I think it may be possible to provide various kinds of experiences.

Therefore, we must create opportunities for those who create certain values ​​in society in our world, but are not rewarded for participating in such value creation.

So, I thought of making a ladder of opportunity, an opportunity income, an opportunity safety net, and an opportunity power plant.

If you do these things as individual projects, various things can come out. For example, in the case of cultural artists, there are people who do creative activities for society but do not receive compensation.

They are not recognized for their price in the market.

Those who provide opportunity income for a certain period of time to such people, or those who take care of the elderly at home, or those who create value for our society, are not being compensated.

It's about those people, or there are people with disabilities who are being trained to find a job.

These people are also involved in creating a certain value for society, so I have to do something for these people.

Also, in the case of a power plant of opportunity, I was told that I should create such an opportunity for social enterprises and social ventures.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: I will do a lot of attracting again.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

So I have a big picture like this: I will make Gyeonggi-do the capital of opportunity, more opportunities, and more even opportunities.

There are dozens of detailed projects out there.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: I heard it now.

You used the term opportunity income.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: For artists, the elderly, and the disabled, how is this different from the basic income that former Gyeonggi governor Lee Jae-myung and current Democratic Party president Lee Jae-myung did?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Opportunity income is not unconditional.

Opportunity incomes are those who participate in the creation of social value but are not rewarded by the market.

As I said earlier, artists below a certain income are not recognized for creating value in society through artistic creative activities.

We reward these people for creating this value with such opportunity income for a certain period of time, and during that period, what will they say now?

Now they have an opportunity to be compensated in the market, and even the disabled participate in vocational training to find a job. .

The same is true for those who provide compensation for a certain period of time to such people, or who care for the elderly at home.

I think there may be a slight difference in that it is not unconditional after a certain period of time for these people.

▷ Joo Young-jin/Anchor: Differentiation from CEO Lee Jae-myung I think there are some people who see it this way.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: I don't mean that.

When I took office, I met the former governor and the former governor.

I've met both Governor Nam Kyung-pil and former Governor Lee Jae-myung, and among the things the former governors did, there are many good policies.

whether the economy or society.

Among the things that the former governor did, if there are good things that the former governor or former governor did, I have to inherit it, revise it and supplement it, and if there is something to change according to the change of the times, I have to change it in this way.

What tenure is this.

The same goes for the president.

It's not about denying or changing what the predecessor did, it's about inheriting the good things and doing it for the people and the people of the island.

And policy, and especially the economy, is a flow.

Things that let you go together without thinking about it.

Of course, in the meantime, the things that need to be really changed and the so-called Kim Dong-yeon-pyo of Gyeonggi-do must be clearly done.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: First of all, I hear the word “opportunity income”.

The brand is Dongyeon-pyo Kim.

Not long ago, at the National Assembly, Minister of the Interior and Safety Lee Sang-min said that the local currency budget has to be eliminated in the long run, and that it should go in that direction. Isn't Gyeonggi Province still issuing local currency?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Then you might feel like you are fighting a bit with the central government.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: I think the central government's decision is wrong.

Local currency is a proven policy.

It is a policy that is welcomed by local residents, consumers, small business owners, and the self-employed.

In Gyeonggi-do, 71% of the nearly 14 million residents used local currency.

And I spent an average of around 170,000 won per month.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: per person?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

It is a policy that 80% or more are satisfied.

This policy has had a very good effect on revitalizing the local economy and stimulating consumption.

So, if there is any political intention in making such a decision, it is wrong.

And seeing the effect of the policy and the reaction of the residents, this is right to continue.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Yoo Jeong-bok, Mayor of Incheon, came out a few days ago, and now, aren’t the three heads of metropolitan areas meeting regularly?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes, it is.

▷ Joo Young-jin/Anchor: I also saw Kim Dong-yeon's Instagram account, photo.

talking over a beer.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: That's right.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Additional landfills in the metropolitan area I hope Mayor Yoo Jeong-bok can come to a conclusion on this issue within next year as much as possible.

In fact, we need to discuss this with the central government, but isn't the consensus of the heads of the three regional groups more important than anything else?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

I met Mayor Jeong-bok Yoo and Mayor Se-hoon Oh a few days ago, and they both know each other before, and they are all reasonable and wonderful people.

Enlarging an image

▷ Joo Young-jin/Anchor: The party targets are different.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: Although the party affiliation is different, every time the three gather, they all agree on where the opposition and the ruling party should be in doing things for the residents of the metropolitan area.

So, last time we agreed to make a regular consultative body practical.

Regarding the landfill site, there was an agreement between the Minister of Environment and the three cities and provinces in 2015, so Mayor Yoo Jeong-bok and Mayor Oh Se-hoon are probably in the same position. Let's find it together.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: Actually, isn't the location of the site the most important thing?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

Second, let's work together to reduce waste as early as possible.

So, things like incineration landfill instead of direct landfill and reduction of waste by at least 5% compared to the previous year are progressing quite well.

Also, we have decided to hold another Lions Council between the three cities and provinces, in which the Minister of Environment participates together, so we will try to find good results there.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Gyeonggi Governor-myeon Taking responsibility for the housekeeping of Gyeonggi-do and doing well is the most important responsibility, but anyway, you are also a politician and did you not have any kind of party position in the Democratic Party?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: I am the co-chair of the special committee for political change in the Democratic Party.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: Special Committee on Political Change.

What about electoral reform or political reform?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: That's right.

including constitutional amendments.

▷ Joo Young-jin/Anchor: Up to constitutional amendment.

Then, can our viewers think that if we do that, Governor Kim Dong-yeon will freely reveal his thoughts on central political issues?

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: No.

First of all, I would like you to think of it this way.

My basic stance is that I will focus on my work in Gyeonggi-do.

The only string connected with central politics is the political change co-chair.

Now that the new leadership has been formed, there is a possibility that there will be some changes, but that is according to the political change and national unity agreement that I put forward in solidarity with Lee Jae-myung, who was the presidential candidate at the time, since the presidential election. It includes constitutional reforms, including reforms, and political reforms related to the constituency system for members of the National Assembly and the release of parliamentary privileges.

So in that regard, I am playing a limited role as the chairperson.

Now, it seems that it is not the right direction for me to talk about central politics, and Gyeonggi-do is a miniature Republic of Korea.

The population is 14 million.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: How is the parliamentary distribution?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: The parliament, coincidentally, is very exquisite right now, it is 78:78.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Is the opposition equal?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: This is Dong-soo.

There is an interesting feature of metropolitan governments. Except for two places, there is only one seat for a provincial or city council member from a minority party.

The difference is so obvious, but Gyeonggi-do is the only one in Gyeonggi-do that is exquisitely Dongsu.


▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Cooperation is really important.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: On the one hand, it is a difficult situation, but in a way, I think it is the exquisite judgment of the local people.

So, I think my first task is to lead the Gyeonggi-do government, starting with policy coordination that goes beyond the ruling and opposition parties through the city council.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: I expected you to answer like that.

However, what many people are curious about, I will ask you after a while.

The Yoon Seok-Yeol administration's economic policies and President Yoon Seok-Yeol's so-called profanity controversy caused a lot of news every day. How do you rate Governor Kim Dong-yeon?

In particular, it seems that they are more interested in economic policy than anyone else and are evaluating it.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: There was an IMF crisis in 2007.

In 2008, there was an international financial crisis.

Both times I was in charge of solving it.

As you may remember, in 2007, the whole nation started collecting gold.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: 1997.

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: I'm sorry.


And during the 2008 international financial crisis, finance, finance, SMEs, and real estate all worked together to overcome the crisis.

How about now?

We are in a situation where a crisis that may be more difficult than the previous two crises is coming. The country is now divided like this and the politics are like this.

And economic policy seems to be heading towards so-called neoliberalism.

There are policies that share some ideas, but I am a bit critical of an economic policy that allows the people to gather strength to cope with a crisis like this in a broad direction.

Also, regarding the vulgarity controversy, we are talking about an economic crisis, a diplomatic crisis, and a political crisis right now, but I think there is also a leadership crisis.

In any case, no matter what the content was, if the president had acknowledged this problem and expressed regret or an apology, we could have moved on and went in a larger direction. is the crisis of

I think this should be restored to normal soon.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: There is still a lot of time left, but the term of the Gyeonggi governor is 4 years.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: And the next presidential election is in five years.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Yes.

▷ Young-Jin Joo/Anchor: Then, exquisitely and if you run for the presidential election, many of you would think that the timing might be right.

How is it?

▶ Kim Dong-yeon/Governor of Gyeonggi-do: Anchor, I'm not busy thinking about that right now.

Currently, Gyeonggi-do, Gyeonggi-do is a quarter of South Korea.

population or economic size.

Gyeonggi-do has all the problems that arise in Korea.

That is why, first of all, for Gyeonggi-do and for the citizens of Gyeonggi-do, it is the right thing to do. I will work hard for Gyeonggi-do without thinking about any political purpose or direction.

▷ Youngjin Joo/Anchor: I see.

Governor Kim Dong-yeon's answer to this answer It's up to the viewers to decide how they might have heard the answer.

Let's hear from you today.

▶ Dongyeon Kim/Governor of Gyeonggi Province: Thank you.
