The government has identified 167 regulations on people's livelihood that make citizens feel inconvenienced in
their daily lives, and the government has come up with a proposal to improve them.

First, contact lenses that could only be purchased by visiting an optician can be purchased online.

The government has decided to start with low-risk disposable lenses and gradually promote an online sales service that connects opticians with consumers.

In addition, the duty-free capacity of perfume for international travel has been increased from 60 mL to 100 mL.

Unnecessary garbage pay-as-you-go bags can be refunded at a nearby retailer or used directly at a new location without a purchase receipt.

In addition, Onnuri gift certificates with an expiration date of 5 years were allowed to be used in traditional markets.

In the restaurant industry, which is suffering from a shortage of manpower, we plan to make it possible to hire foreign workers with a non-professional work visa, or E-9, which does not allow them to work.

Children and grandchildren over the age of 19 with severe disabilities will be allowed to accompany them to welfare homes for the elderly, and emergency passport issuance services will be expanded at local international airports.

[Bang Ki-seon/Head of the State Affairs Coordination Office: The government is doing everything in its power to resolve various small but meaningful regulations on people's livelihood in order to alleviate the difficulties of people's livelihood.]

According to the Office for the Coordination of State Affairs, the government's expansion of late-night pharmacies to allow people to purchase medicines during vulnerable hours was considered the best example of the government's innovation for people's livelihood.
