President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday appointed three new senior aides for the economy, job creation and civil affairs in the first reshuffle of presidential secretaries since he took office last year.

Yoon Jong-won, a former director from the Finance Ministry, has been named the senior secretary to the president for economic affairs.

Yoon is currently the chief of the South Korean mission to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, according to the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae. Yoon replaced Hong Jang-pyo.

Jung Tae-ho, a presidential secretary for policy planning, was named the senior secretary for job creation, replacing Bahn Jahng-shick.

The president also named a new senior secretary for civil affairs. Lee Yong-sun, a district chief of the ruling Democratic Party, replaced Ha Seung-chang, who previously served as senior secretary for civic reform.

Presidential chief of staff Im Jong-seok said the reshuffle was largely aimed at further accelerating government efforts to reform the local economy and create new jobs, both key objectives of the Moon Jae-in administration.

"The past year has been a period of setting the policy direction of the Moon Jae-in government, which is income-led growth, innovation-led growth and fair economy," Im told a press briefing.

"The second-year Moon Jae-in government will do its utmost to create actual progress that people can feel by further accelerating its efforts to realize income-led growth and innovation-led growth," he added. (yonhap)
