The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism will work to boost communication between the government and the people.
The ministry said in a public briefing on its policy tasks for 2011 held at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul on Monday that the government achieved its policy goals last year, including the successful hosting of the G20 summit in Seoul.
However, it added that the achievements were overshadowed by the spread of foot-and-mouth disease and strained inter-Korean relations.
The ministry noted that there has been a lack of effective communication between the government and the public and that it will seek to rectify the situation by boosting two-way communication with younger generations via online channels such as social networking services.
