Ministry of Unification holds a meeting of the inter-Korean exchange and cooperation policy council of local governments
 
On April 21, the Ministry of Unification held a meeting of the inter-Korean exchange and cooperation policy council of local governments.

The participants discussed ways to support local governments, specifically in consideration of the demands of local governments and the direction of inter-Korean exchange and cooperation. The council resolved the rules on the composition and operation of the inter-Korean exchange and cooperation policy council of local governments (proposal) and the establishment of the inter-Korean exchange and cooperation working group of local governments (proposal).
 
Unification Minister Lee In-young put emphasis on the roles and responsibilities of local governments in inter-Korean exchange and cooperation to keep up with the times of “expansion of local self-government and decentralization.” Minister Lee emphasized that inter-Korean exchange and cooperation by local governments, which closely impacts the people of the two Koreas, is essential for facilitating the development of inter-Korean relations and the establishment of peace on the Korean Peninsula.
 
The Ministry of Unification will continue to identify the difficulties in the process of pursuing inter-Korean exchange and cooperation by local governments, actively accept their demands for system improvement, and thus reflect their voices into improvement of policy.
 
* The inter-Korean exchange and cooperation policy council of local governments facilitates communication and consultation between the Ministry of Unification and local governments when they engage in inter-Korean exchange and cooperation.
