Municipal Governments in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo Request Reasonable National Expenditure


Municipal governments in Gwangju and Jeollanamdo have reportedly requested a more reasonable and realistic distribution of national funds to aid local governments whose financial management is at risk due to excessive burdens from various welfare projects.

Jeollanamdo and the autonomous districts in Gwangju, including Buk-gu, requested the national government to aid them on various national welfare policies, such as free nursery for infants and toddlers as well as basic pensions for senior citizens.

As of now, state-run welfare policies are shouldered by local governments with the result that municipal budgets are financially vulnerable and at risk of possible financial difficulties.

In Jeollanamdo, a total of 15 municipalities in Wando, Jangheung, Jindo and Gurye are having difficulty in providing adequate financial aid to residents with only the revenues earned in their regional governments.
