Prime minister announces gov't-civilian committee on national reforms

The government has put forth a new plan to have civilians take part in President Park's national reform drive.

"Having the government and civilians take part in the national reform committee under the Prime Minister's Office, I plan to establish a joint participation system."

In an address to the nation Tuesday, the prime minister said the committee will gather public opinion on reforms, on ways to improve national safety and rooting out social corruption.
This comes after President Park pledged sweeping reforms within the government and the
public sector in response to April's deadly ferry disaster.
Chung added the committee will mainly focus on bolstering public awareness and safety inspections.

"After a thorough discussion at the committee, we will finalize a master plan on safety innovation, a blueprint for a safer Korea by next February."

Vowing to set a framework for public reform within the month, the prime minister also urged the parliament to support a swift passage of government restructuring and reform-related bills.
A key part of President Park's restructuring plan includes establishing a safety ministry to oversee management of all forms of natural and man-made disasters.
Prime Minister Chung, who was retained after he resigned to take responsibility for the government's lax response to the ferry accident, also promised the public that he would communicate better with the people, as well as political parties, and not hesitate in delivering public opinion to the president.
