Yonhap News Agency, Bangkok, November 18 (Xinhua) South Korean Prime Minister Han Deok-soo attended the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Leaders' Informal Meeting in Thailand on the 18th and said that he will look for new business opportunities in the process of transforming and upgrading towards a green economy.
Han Deok-soo expressed the above in the first session of the meeting, and emphasized that South Korea will create conditions for promoting the contribution of all parties to carbon neutrality by subsidizing small businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises. Han Deok-soo also pointed out that the new crown epidemic and high prices have borne the brunt of the vulnerable groups. To achieve balanced, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, it is necessary to increase assistance to the vulnerable groups. The South Korean government will build a social safety net while restoring fiscal soundness.
When attending the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC), Han Deok-soo also said that achieving carbon neutrality requires both domestic and foreign efforts. The Korean government is implementing a scientific emission reduction policy led by the people and taking into account vulnerable groups.
During lunch with representatives of non-APEC members invited to the meeting, such as France and Saudi Arabia, Han Deok-soo introduced that in order to reform the economic structure, the South Korean government is reducing unnecessary regulation and excessive intervention and creating a predictable and transparent business environment.
In addition, Han Lisu also discussed bilateral cooperation with Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape and Peruvian Vice President Boruarte. (Finish)
