Moon vows gov’t efforts to transform agricultural system

SEOUL-- President Moon Jae-in said Thursday his government will push for the epoch-making development of the country's agricultural and fisheries sectors in tandem with a response to the fourth industrial revolution.

He laid out a vision for the "bold transformation" of the farming field during a town hall meeting at the Korea National College of Agriculture and Fisheries (KNCAF) in Jeonju, North Jeolla Province, some 240 kilometers south of Seoul.

The liberal Moon administration's policy motto is "inclusive and innovative" growth.

"The foundation of the development of Korea was farming and fishing villages," he pointed out. "The development of our remarkable industry today was possible thanks to the support of farming and fishing villages."
