Gimpo City, led by Mayor Jung Ha-young, held a price stabilization campaign for Chuseok's peak products such as fruits and agricultural and fisheries products at Gimpo 5-day Market on Sept. 29.
With about 10 people including Cho Sung-choon, director of the economic bureau, and employees of the job economy division participating, the campaign examined the price trends for 16 of the agricultural, livestock, forestry and fisheries items, including the economic sentiment following Chuseok.
They asked citizens who visited the market to join in stabilizing prices and revitalizing the local economy by purchasing local agricultural products and setting up frugal memorial services.
In addition, they encouraged merchants to work hard to revitalize the five-day market by collecting opinions on the development and revitalization of the five-day market through a meeting with merchants who are suffering from the COVID-19 quarantine inspection to ensure the safe use of the five-day market by local residents visiting to shop.
"We will do our best to stabilize prices and revitalize local commercial districts, and we ask for the citizens' attention and participation to revitalize the five-day market," said Director Cho.
