[JoongAng Ilbo , National, Politics, October 10 2008] President to address nation via radio

President Lee Myung-bak is planning to begin a series of radio addresses, the first of which deals with public confidence and the global financial crisis, a senior Blue House official said yesterday.

“Since last month we started planning for regular radio addresses by the president to seek the public’s understanding of national governance issues, including serious ones involving the economy and society,” said the presidential aide. “We were to begin the first in the series on Monday. But if preparation does not go smoothly, there could be a delay.”

According to the Blue House, President Lee will speak for up to 10 minutes every week to address the nation candidly.
