The National Sports Policy Committee (co-chaired by the prime minister and the private sector), a collaborative body that deliberates and decides on major sports policies, has been launched.
Prime Minister Han Deok-soo held the first meeting with co-chair Irisa Lee at the Government Complex Seoul on the 20th, and discussed the sports promotion plan and preparations for the 2024 Gangwon Winter Youth Olympic Games.
The National Sports Policy Committee creates a long-term roadmap by integrating scattered sports-related policies from the government and the private sector, and evaluates and inspects major measures to ensure the right to sports for the people.
It also establishes a sports promotion master plan every five years after deliberation and prepares and coordinates major policies related to hosting international competitions.
On the day, Prime Minister Han Deok-soo presented certificates of appointment to six civilian members, including former lawmaker Lee Ie-ri-sa, KBO President Heo Koo-yeon, former head of the Korea Institute of Sports Science and Technology Lee Jong-gak, professor Park Jong-hoon of Catholic Kandong University, professor Kim Seok-kyu of Dongguk University’s sports science department, and professor Kim Ki-han of Seoul National University’s physical education department. 카지노사이트777
There are nine civilian members, including three ex officio members, including Lee Ki-heung, president of the Korea Sports Federation, Chung Jin-wan, president of the Korea Para Sports Federation, and Cho Hyun-jae, chairman of the National Sports Promotion Organization.
From the government, ministers and vice ministers from 15 ministries, including the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, will participate.
The first meeting was also attended by Kangwon Special Self-Governing Province Governor Kim Jin-tae and Kangwon 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games Organizing Committee Chairman Choi Jong-gu.
The NPSC was briefed on the first Sports Promotion Plan (2024-28), which includes as a key task the separation of physical education curriculum from the “enjoyable life” program in grades 1 and 2 of elementary schools announced by the Ministry of Education in October.
The National Sports Policy Committee has set a goal of raising the nation’s daily sports participation rate to 70 percent by 2028, becoming a G7 sports powerhouse and expanding the domestic sports market to 105 trillion won.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the lead department, said, “This is the first time a council specialized in physical education has been launched.
The council will be held at least twice a year whenever there is a major policy agenda.
At the beginning of the new year, we will announce a specific action plan to support the sports promotion plan.”
