Yoon Seok-yeol celebrated his one-year anniversary in office today (10th). President Yun emphasized that there have been achievements in the field of diplomacy and security, and that policy has shifted to a market-oriented stance. However, in the process, it has been pointed out that the opposition and the opposition have become distant and there has been a lack of dialogue and communication.

Reporter Kim Ki-tae looks at the past one year of Yoon Seok-yeol's government.

A day before the first anniversary of his
inauguration, the State Council meeting.

President Yoon Seok-yeol delivered a message to the nation containing his evaluation and remarks over the past one year.

During the two U.S.-ROK summits, we emphasized diplomatic and security achievements, such as strengthening the ROK-U.S. alliance and normalizing relations between South Korea and Japan.

[President Yoon Seok-yeol: When I think about this time a year ago, when I took office, there is no area where changes have changed more than diplomatic security.]

On domestic issues, he strongly criticized the policies of the previous government, emphasizing the policy shift to a private-led, market-oriented stance.

The current government was inaugurated on May 1 last year with the opening of the Yongsan era.

Labor, pensions, and education were identified as the "three major reforms" tasks.

Under the aura of the rule of law in labor, it has sped up labor reform, instructing labor unions to strengthen accounting transparency and eradicate illegal violence at construction sites.

He then promoted the nuclear industry and scrapped the so-called "Moon Jae-in Care" to strengthen health insurance coverage.

The situation in the National Assembly is dominated by the opposition party.

But dialogue and compromise were missing, and tensions escalated amid the power-to-power standoff.

As a result, 1% of government-initiated bills passed the National Assembly in the past year, far below the 1.1% of government bills passed in the last year.

Due to poor policy coordination, early enrollment for 1-year-olds and flexible working hours have been criticized by public opinion and have been stranded or lost momentum.

[Chung Chung-hwa/Former Speaker of the National Assembly: He lacked the kind of political power to embrace the opposition and lead politics and break through with the opposition, which I think is a bit disappointing.]

Regarding President Yun's approval rating, which hovers in the 5 percent range, the president's office said it would work hard and not lose its initial focus.
