Policy Arrangement Meeting
CARE Representative Park Soyoun and Park Hong Geun, a candidate for the member of the National Assembly (Jungnang-gu) held a policy arrangement meeting on April 4th of 2016 at Hong Geun’s election office.
The two came to a consensus that if Hong Geun were to make it to the 20th National Assembly, he would cooperate with CARE to ameliorate the animal welfare situation. As a member of the 19th National Assembly and a co-representative of the animal welfare forum, Park Hong Geun has continued to make immense effort on improving and revising animal protection laws.
Together, Park Hong Geun (a candidate for the member of the 20th National Assembly) and CARE set high value on preserving the lives of animals and developing animal welfare policies and have concluded to vow on carrying out the following set of plans.
One, to increase the punishment on those accused of animal abuse and to strengthen the preexisting animal rights laws. Secondly, mandatory education on respecting life forms in all institutions in addition to animal welfare education within all civil service training centers. Third, an active legislative development and progression towards animal welfare. Fourth, providing a method to further include the opinions and efforts of animal rights groups such as CARE.
