Whether she has the inclination or time for
gardening… the President-elect tended to the economy today with a green thumb… promising
to root out weeds and create an environment where small companies could grow just as well
as the large ones. She also sat down with senior citizens…
where she vowed to fulfill her pledges aimed at providing welfare benefits for the elderly.
Our presidential correspondent Eoh Jin-joo reports. President-elect Park’s economic policy direction
can be summed up like this: Creating an environment for companies in which
they can concentrate on their businesses through credible policies… and spreading the “warmth
of growth” to all parts of society. During her visit to the Korea Chamber of Commerce
and Industry Wednesday,… President-elect Park stressed that a cycle must be established
within the Korean economy,… where small companies can grow into medium enterprises…
and where mid-sized firms can become conglomerates. In particular,… Park promised to set up
a system that continuously supports small businesses even after they grow into mid-sized
ones,… and to do away with unfair practices that are making things difficult for small
companies. She made it clear that she is against any
corporate tax raise that could restrain business activities.
President-elect Park also called on business leaders to invest in society and create more
jobs,… two things she said are needed to create greater corporate social responsibility. [Interview : Park Geun-hye, President-elect]

that workers are going through to secure their jobs.” Later in the day,… Park met with members

aimed at providing welfare benefits to the elderly, who have sacrificed their lives for
