Experts advocate for immigration amid population decline

Korea Times, Korea, 19 October 2020 - The government should change its immigration policy drastically in the face of the declining population, experts said Monday.

According to a paper titled "Searching for the Direction of Mid- and Long-term Korean Immigration Policy," published in the latest issue of the journal entitled Multicultural Content Research by Chung-Ang University's Institute of Cultural Contents, the establishment of a ministry in charge of managing immigration issues is necessary to implement comprehensive related policies.

Kim Yeon-hong, an official of the Human Resources Development Service of Korea who authored the paper, said, "The situation will become so serious that the nation's population will see a significant decrease in 2020, and the country, by 2030 will face national-security challenges due to a shrinking active military."
