Minister Nominee Nixes Quota Cut Review

2006/03/23 Source

Culture and Tourism Minister-designate Kim Myong-gon opposes a review of the planned cut in the domestic screen quota.

In a parliamentary confirmation hearing Thursday, Kim said the government prudently decided on the cut and reconsideration will only trigger confusion over state policies.

From July, the government will require theaters to screen domestic films 73 days a year instead of one-hundred-46.

Kim said the painstaking decision took more than ten years of discussion and review and is inevitable due to the changing times.
