Tourists in Jindo Fall Rapidly Damaging Tourism Industry in Jindo

In the midst of nationwide mourning for the April 16th ferry sinking accident and ongoing search operation taking place in Jindo Island for the 10 missing passengers, the number of tourists traveling to Jindo continues to mark a stiff downward trend, further damaging the tourism industry in Jindo.

According to the Jindo-gun district, the number of tourists who visited Jindo from April to June was recorded at 46,000, down 65,000 from the same time last year.

Due to the rapid fall in the number of tourists, tourism revenues have been reduced by 50 percent or 1.2 billion won this year from April to June, down 1.2 billion won year-on-year.

The Pan-Regional Jindo Disaster Control Committee reportedly asked the national government to prepare countermeasures for the continuous drop in tourists and the shrinking tourism market in the region.
