Innovative City VS Sejong(세종) City, national fund support difference by 6 times


It was discoveredt that 10 innovative cities established in Jeonnam Naju(나주) City as well as other cities have had a low range of support from the government.

This is in comparison to Sejong(세종) City that the National Fund Budget's support has been limited.

This is according to resources from information disclosures requested from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport as well as the National Agency for Administrative City Construction.

So far, there were some 799.8 billion won of support for 10 innovative cities across the country. However, there were 6.3 times that amount mobilized for Sejong(세종) City, with more than 5 trillion won.

Regarding such an imbalance of national budget support, a political representative of the Jeonnam(전남) region said that "although Sejong(세종) City is represented as the complex administrative capital city, this is another form of imbalance and discrimination. The budget support for Sejong(세종) is more than 6 times that of all the amount put together for 10 places across the country".
