《中英對照讀新聞》S. Korea pledges to spend W30tr for 5G ecosystem by 2022－南韓矢言2022年前斥資30兆韓元發展5G生態系統
The South Korean government pledged Monday to invest more than 30 trillion won to establish a full-fledged 5G environment by 2022, as the country beat its competitor by a hair to begin commercial services of the hyperspeed network on April 4.
During an event to mark the achievement at the Olympic Park in Seoul, President Moon Jae-in vowed to create $73 billion worth of exports and 600,000 jobs by 2026. To achieve the goal, the government pledged to promote industries such as autonomous driving and digital medical care.
According to the president, the global 5G industry will become a 1,161 trillion won market by 2026, about twice as large as that of semiconductors. To encourage prompt construction of nationwide 5G networks, the government vowed to lower taxes for network construction by up to 3 percent.
