[아시아경제 김혜원 기자] Kim Yong-geun, full-time vice chairman of the Korean Federation of Business Owners, expressed his appreciation after leaving his term of office for one year.

According to the business world on the 14th, Vice-Chairman Kim repeatedly expressed his gratitude to internal personnel including Kyung-Sik Sohn before the Lunar New Year holiday and asked for a discussion on his successor.

Vice-Chairman Kim, a former official from the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy, was chosen as the replacement after Song Young-jung, then Vice Chairman of the Gyeonggi General, was dismissed in 2018 when he served as the President of the Korea Automobile Industry Association. Then, he was reappointed in February of last year and was serving a two-year term.

It is known that Vice Chairman Kim expressed his first verbal appreciation shortly after the recent regular assembly. Despite the strong opposition of the business world It is reported that the government and the ruling party expressed their intention to take moral responsibility for successively passing the so-called ‘3rd Corporate Regulation Act’, the amendment to the Labor Union Act, and the Severe Accident Corporate Punishment Act.

Vice-Chairman Kim has been actively working against the legislation of the company’s imprisonment bill with vice-chairmen of major economic organizations such as the Small and Medium Business Administration. An official from the KCTU said, “I know that Vice Chairman Kim felt a lot of helplessness because the Gyeonggi-gun took the lead in opposing the legislation of the anti-enterprise law, but the government and the National Assembly did not listen at all.” I kept saying that,” he said.

A member company official also said, “Vice Chairman Kim often said that his role seems to be up to this point,” and said, “I want the government and the National Assembly to feel that the will of the economy is desperate and serious by resigning. I know it,” he said.

The General Assembly will hold a meeting of the presidency on the 17th to discuss the issue of succession of Vice Chairman Kim, and then appoint a successor at the general meeting as early as the 24th. Vice-Chairman Kim’s successors include Lee Dong-geun, President of Hyundai Economic Research Institute, and Ryu Ki-jeong, Executive Vice President of Gyeonggi-do. An industry insider said, “As the vice-chairman of major economic organizations, there is a voice hoping that a person with a sense of weight who can serve as a bridge between the government and the National Assembly is given.”
