Gov't to spend more on safety management systemUpdated: 2014-05-02 06:46:51 KST
And in the wake of the disaster, the Korean government says it's investing more on establishing a more centralized disaster response system and boosting emergency training.
President Park Geun-hye asked all ministries to make sure manuals that contain emergency response procedures are in place, and those in charge are well-informed and properly trained.
She also talked about maintaining the country's financial soundness through a so-called "Pay-Go" policy so that expenditures are paid for with funds that are already available.
