[2014-06-25] Residents of Jindo in Need of Countermeasures for Basic Living

Residents of Jindo in Need of Countermeasures for Basic Living

 

Residents of Jindo Island, who are struggling from drastically reduced tourists to the island since the tragic ferry accident on April 16th, asked the national government to prepare countermeasures for economic support and compensation for damaged areas.

While requesting the government to make all-out efforts in finding the missing passengers from the sunken ferry, residents and farmers in Jindo Island asked the national government for effective plans for compensation and economic support for the local tourism and farming industries.

Accommodations, restaurants, and beaches at regional tourist attractions continue to suffer from a drastic fall in the number of visitors since the accident.

Local fishermen also complained of a large number of refunds for locally grown fisheries goods, such as abalone, seaweed and anchovy, since the media coverage on the oil spill from the capsized ferry.

Jindo, along with the city of Ahnsan, the city from which up to 300 high school students who perished in the ferry accident were from, was previously proclaimed a Special Disaster Zone, but residents say governmental measures for aids and support do not meet their needs.
