Choo Kyung-ho meets leaders of SME
On Thursday, December 1st, Deputy Prime Minister Choo Kyung-ho held a meeting with small and medium-sized business owners. The meeting was held to collect opinions from the small and medium-sized business community in the process of preparing economic policy directions for 2023. Chu said “The government actively supports SMEs through various policy measures so that they can overcome the difficulties they face and take a new leap forward. In the meantime, many companies have suffered because they have not properly reflected the price increase of raw materials. The supply unit price indexation system, which has been a long-cherished wish of small and medium-sized businesses for 14 years, has recently passed the standing committee and is about to be legislated. The government will also come up with a plan to reorganize the family business inheritance deduction scheme to promote investment, job creation and lifespan.”
