Pres. Park meets with leaders of small- and mid-sized firms
President Park Geun-hye has stressed the need to create what she calls a new "economic ecosystem" that boosts the competitiveness of small- and medium-sized firms.
At a luncheon with leaders of small- and mid-sized companies on Wednesday she said that promoting the growth of SMEs is important for boosting Korea's prosperity and realizing her administration's goal of a 70 percent employment rate.
The president called on these companies to actively develop new technologies and ideas, as creativity and innovation have become key factors in securing an upperhand in the current economic environment.
