Kim Hyun-mee Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport

Welcome to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

Many Koreans nowadays worry about finding stable housing, while facing the burden of high rent or having to find a new place to live. With the government now tasked with a bigger role and responsibility than ever, we at this Ministry feel a great sense of duty to answer the call of our times and the people we are entrusted to serve.

Apartments should be a place to call home, not a means to make money. We are determined to focus our policies on stabilizing the housing conditions of the working class in an effort to rein in the chaotic housing market. Our mission is to make sure low and middle-income households and those with real demand no longer suffer from extreme housing stress.

A country's land should serve as a home for the people. Bearing this in mind, we will seek more balanced territorial development with a focus on fostering Sejong, innovation cities, corporate cities, Saemangeum and other regions into real growth hubs. Through the so-called "New Deal for Urban Renewal", our goal is to improve the quality of life, create jobs and secure future growth engines.

We will also tackle abnormal business practices to create industry conditions that help promote mutual sustenance between operators and workers, thereby sharpening the competitive edge for industries and improving the quality of jobs.

With regards to transportation services, we are committed to better serving the public interest. Rather than viewing state-run institutions only from a profitability-oriented perspective, we will emphasize the fundamental value of the public services as those for the people.

Our policies will focus on pragmatic efforts that place the people before the numbers or the industries.

I will do my best to keep an open communication with all our staff to help them work for the lives and the happiness of the people with a sense of pride and devotion.

In closing, I hope to meet and communicate with you through this website or Facebook

Thank you.
