Holiday economics
This year's Chusok holiday will take up five days from Sept. 18 to 22. Due to this rare long holidays, everyone is busy planning how they will spend the time. Many still visit their hometowns, but those who plan to travel overseas during the holiday period increased sharply as nuclear family has become the most common form of family in South Korea. The custom of South Korea's largest holiday is changing. Meanwhile, the five days of holiday will have large impact on economic activities. Factories will stop operating, so industrial productivity will fall. On the other hand, some industries look forward to this holiday. Aside from travel agencies, large supermarkets and department stores which sell Chusok gifts will benefit from increased sales. The Bizline will look into how South Koreans spend their Chusok holiday and how companies and industrial sites are affected by long holidays.



Interview
Reforming agricultural system based on creative economy
Interviewee: Dr. Lee, Kyu-seong. Director general, Department of Agricultural biology of Rural Development Administration.

South Korea needs a new approach in integrating farming to creative economy growth strategy as the push for the creative economy is a core task for the country. What does creative economy have to do with farming? We can find many cases which create high values by integrating creative ideas and technologies to agriculture. Silkworm farming had once been considered as a declining industry. But now its product is used widely in cosmetics, toothpaste and soap. It also has a potential to be used in artificial ear drums and bones. Currently, many silkworm seeds are pricier than gold per gram.

As we move into an aging society, various health functional food and medicine made from crop are becoming important. Farming sector is also applying global climate change to high value added climate business. South Korean agriculture is struggling with FTAs but this is an opportunity we shouldn't miss.
How can we create high values with limited labor force? Chusok is the time when we share the joy of harvesting. We look into where South Korean farming industry is headed under creative economy strategy.
