The Korean government is trying to come up with relief measures to address the economic crisis. President Moon Jae-in has ordered his administration to swiftly carry out state projects that have been postponed. And some say that the president is specifically referring to the construction of a new airport in the nation's southeastern region. The prime minister's office has been re-considering the project since last year, and will likely reach a conclusion soon.

​President Moon Jae-in, who compared the current economic crisis to a "war," is urging the government to approve the third extra budget and devise economic policies as soon as possible. He has also ordered his administration to ramp up large state projects that have been postponed.

[Soundbite] PRES. MOON JAE-IN : "I hope that large state projects that have been postponed due to conflict of interest will be carried out swiftly to revitalize the economy and contribute to creating jobs."

Cheong Wa Dae drew a clear line by saying that the president did not have any particular projects in mind. However, some say he referred to the construction of a new airport in the nation's southeastern region. The conflict over where to build the new airport has lasted more than a decade. After arguing over whether the new airport should be constructed on Gadeokdo in Busan or in Miryang, Gyeongsangnam-do Province, authorities eventually decided to just expand the existing Gimhae Airport. But due to strong opposition from Busan, Ulsan and Gyeongsangnam-do province, the prime minister's office began to review the matter last December. It will likely reach a decision soon. A government official told KBS in a phone interview that the verification committee has held more than 40 meetings so far and that the final decision could be reached soon. The so-called "Korean new deal" -- a large-scale digital-based IT state project aimed at creating jobs -- is also gaining speed. President Moon has instructed his administration to unearth various projects including telemedicine and online education. The president also called for solidarity with the central economic relief headquarters led by Finance Minister Hong Nam-ki.
