[Chosun Ilbo, October 13 2008] Lee Prepares for First Radio Address

President Lee Myung-bak delivers his first radio address at 7:15 a.m. on Monday. Such talks are to be a recurrent event whenever important issues arise. Titled "How Are You? I Am President," His first address on Monday will last for eight minutes and 30 seconds on several channels including KBS.

Lee will apparently emphasize that the government's top priority is to maintain jobs and create more. He will say the current financial crisis is different from the IMF crisis in the late 1990s, and that trust is the most important factor in overcoming the difficulties. To beat the financial crisis, he will also call on businesses, financial institutions, politicians and ordinary people to play their roles, a presidential official said.
