Ministry of Unification holds online public hearing on amendment of the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act

- Plan to amend the Act to drive inter-Korean exchange and cooperation going forward on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the enactment of the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act -

May 26, 2020

The Ministry of Unification will hear public opinion before amending the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act, which sets forth the principles and procedures necessary for inter-Korean exchange and cooperation.

To this end, it will hold an online public hearing on the amendment of the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act at 2 P.M. on May 27, 2020.
 
In revising the Act, the Ministry intends to better facilitate the people’s inter-Korean exchange and cooperation efforts.

Since its enactment in 1990, the Inter-Korean Exchange and Cooperation Act has defined the principles and procedures of inter-Korean exchange and cooperation. It has offered the basis for inter-Korean exchange and cooperation which had been recognized as the political question doctrine to be carried out according to law.

The amendment aims to further promote inter-Korean exchange and cooperation by expanding the allowable scope of contacts which form the basis for exchange and cooperation and specifying local governments as the main agents of inter-Korean cooperation projects.

A channel for the online public hearing will be available from May 26 to 28, and anyone will be permitted to present questions and opinions through the bulletin board of the channel.

The Ministry will duly consider the main points discussed at the public hearing and the opinions expressed by the public and strive to amend the Act accordingly.
