[아시아경제 영남취재본부 주철인 기자] The problem of livelihood measures for extinct fishermen in Jinhae has been solved for the first time in 24 years.

On the 18th, the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission held an on-site coordination meeting to resolve complaints about livelihood measures for extinct fishermen caused by the construction of a new port in Busan at the Marine Solar Tower in Jinhae Marine Park, Jinhae-gu, Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do.

Gyeongsangnam-do, Busan-Jinhae Free Economic Zone Authority, Changwon-si Gyeongnam Development Corporation, Jinhae Ocean Resort, and other approval organizations, project operators, and private operators, and fishermen’s organizations such as the Jinhae Livelihood Measures Association and Uichang Livelihood Measures Association signed an agreement on the provision of land for livelihood measures. .

According to the agreement, Changwon City will sell part of the land in Ungdong District 1 owned by the city at the price desired by the extinct fishermen. Additional costs such as land embankment and soft ground treatment costs will be mutually settled by fishermen and Jinhae Ocean Resort, a private company in Ungdong District 1.

It will sell 34,000 pyeong each to the Jinhae Livelihood Measures Association and the Uichang Livelihood Measures Association, a total of 68,000 pyeong (220,000 square meters).

In June 1997, the government signed a contract for the construction of the Busan New Port with Gyeongsangnam-do, Busan City, and regional fisheries cooperatives, stipulating that in addition to compensation for damage caused by loss of fishing grounds, measures for the livelihood of fishermen were prepared separately.

Based on this, in 2009, the former Jinhae City (currently Changwon City), the Livelihood Countermeasures Committee for extinct fishermen, and the Jinhae Fisheries Cooperative signed an agreement recognizing the rights of extinct fishermen for a part of the site of the Ungdong district in Jinhae, which was filled with dredged soil from the construction of the new port.

The city of Changwon included the sale of a part of the area of ​​Ungdong District 1, owned by the city in 2014, to fishermen in the Ungdong District Development Implementation Plan.

However, it was difficult to find a solution because fishermen who wanted to purchase the land at a low price and Changwon City, who had to proceed with the sale procedure in accordance with legal standards, were at odds.

Heo Seong-moo, Mayor of Changwon, said, “I am sorry and sorry for the reality of the administration, which has not been able to come up with livelihood measures while ignoring the unfortunate reality of fishermen for over 20 years. It seems that a good result came out of the organization’s big concessions and a great victory,” he said.
