President Moon is overseas, but the South Korean cabinet held its regular meeting today.
They discussed moving forward with several measures -- one, to give a boost to the emerging hydrogen car industry.
Also, strengthening the protection of Koreans' personal information in the hands of foreign companies like Google and Facebook.
Kim Jiyeon has this report.
Various bills related to the economy and people's livelihoods were reviewed and deliberated upon on Tuesday at the tenth Cabinet meeting presided over by Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon.
They included allowing the installation of charging stations for hydrogen vehicles... near commercial or residential areas... as part of efforts to promote the use of eco-friendly cars.
The prime minister also expressed his appreciation to the local taxi and private carpooling industries,... which reached a resolution last week.
"It's been the result of communication and concessions by both sides. It'll serve as an exemplary precedent for similar cases in the future."
Other agenda items included regulations that'll make it harder for private schools to fire or penalize staff members without reasonable cause... as well as measures to tackle sexual harassment.
Also, amendments to strengthen the protection of personal data stored by global IT giants, which have servers overseas, such as Google, Facebook and Apple,... were also discussed.
Under proposals,... the companies could be fined up to 18-thousand U.S. dollars if they don't designate a local representative to deal with the matter.
