Time to put words into action for fair society

The focus of President Moon Jae-in's budget speech at the National Assembly, Tuesday, can be summed up in two words: fairness and reform. Moon stressed the need for a strong push for far-reaching reform to usher in a fair society. That's why he used the word "fairness" 27 times in his half-hour address intended to explain next year's government budget and its fiscal policy.

As Moon said, he has come to take the public's mounting aspiration for fairness more seriously than ever before. For the past two months the President has been facing severe criticism for reneging on his promise to create a fair society. He made the promise when he took office in May 2017.
