    President Moon Jae-in has announced funding of KRW 170 trillion for projects and businesses related to the Korean New Deal over the next five years and a policy fund worth KRW 20 trillion to invest in related sectors.


    At the first strategy meeting for the Korean New Deal on Sept. 3 held at Cheong Wa Dae, he predicted that this new national strategy will "open the future of the Korean economy through New Deal funds and New Deal financing."


    "Together with the people, we aim to spearhead the Korean New Deal's success based on three pillars -- fiscal planning, financing from state-run financial institutions and private sector financing," he said. 

    On the "participatory" New Deal fund that anyone can pitch into, the president said it will "intensively invest" in Korean New Deal sectors.

    Adding that "more than anything else, financing from state-run and private sector institutions is pivotal to the success of the Korean New Deal," the president said that through 2025, public and private institutions will inject KRW 100 trillion and KRW 70 trillion, respectively, into Korean New Deal projects and businesses.

    He added that "if people invest in the participatory New Deal fund, they will be able to share in the results," and that "on top of generating profits for individuals, it will be an opportunity for them to directly invest in Korea's future and social values."


    "It's also very meaningful that abundant liquidity in the market is being directed from non-productive areas such as real state to productive fields."


    "Since the Government and financial sector have joined forces for the Republic of Korea’s future, I look forward to this providing great hope for our economy and people," he said.


    After the meeting, Reuters on the same day said in the article "S. Korea plans to create $17 bln fund for 'New Deal' economic initiatives," "The fund, aimed at financing economic initiatives that invest in technology sectors for jobs and growth, will be partly financed by policy banks as well as retail investors who will be invited to make investments."
