He announced that he would invest 135 trillion won over five years to build data infrastructure such as the Internet of Things and 6G, and to transform traditional industries into six core fields such as AI, semiconductors, and supercomputers.

By doing so, we plan to create 2 million digital jobs and create additional added value of more than 30 trillion won per year for decades.

An official from the Democratic Party’s election committee said, “We will differentiate ourselves from presidential candidate Yoon Seok-yeol, who seeks to preempt the values ​​of growth and the future to judge the past and the people.”

Discussion is also underway to reorganize the predecessor, in which candidate Lee holds the ‘full power of renewal’.

He plans to finish streamlining the decision-making structure of the predecessors within this week, and is said to be working especially hard on recruiting outside party talent.

A key official from the Democratic Party said, “We are considering recruiting unconventional talent. There is also an idea of ​​recruiting conservatives in addition to young people and women.”

In the midst of this, when discussing integration with the Open Democratic Party, Rep. Jo Eung-cheon expressed concern that he was going the opposite way to the mid-way expansion.
