Hwang, Seong Kyu Vice Minister for Transport

Dedicated to innovating the transport and logistics environment for stronger national competitiveness and better quality of life for our people

Transportation and logistics are critical areas that are directly related to the daily lives of our citizens and potentially determine our national competitiveness. Our ministry will make every effort to innovate the transport and logistics environment nationwide so that all our people can enjoy real changes that improve our lives.

Our primary action will be focused on preparing for the future in line with the rapidly changing transport and logistics environment. We aim to lead the development of 'Future Mobility and Logistics Industries' characterized by self-driving cars, electric vehicles, ride-sharing, urban air mobility, and smart logistics. To this end, we will promote investments in the relevant industries and accelerate the implementation of the necessary legal and regulatory institutions.

Furthermore, we will bring more diverse and closely connected means of transportation into our lives. In addition to the well-established national transport systems centered on railways and roads, we will deploy a range of optimal transport networks. In consideration of demand and operational efficiency, we will add a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, trams, and other modes of transportation. We will also reinforce transfer facilities connecting different modes to ensure a faster and more convenient use of public transportation.

We always put protection of lives and safety as a top priority. We will make constant efforts to reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries. In the overall transport and logistics industry, we will maintain and improve the safety of our users, workers, and facilities.

We aim to be trustworthy at all times and deliver better transport and logistics services for everyone.

Thank you.
