Plans to Enhance Gaming Industry in Busan
The city of Busan is coming up with a plan to boost the gaming industry.
The plan is aimed at building a “2020 game industry center city” that will generate 1 trillion won in sales.
It contains initiatives to attract major domestic players and global research and development teams as well as ramp up local game businesses to the status of a major complex with an investment of 420 billion won.
In particular, the “Busan Culture Contents Complex,” which is being built in Centum City, will be the center for development and integration for the local gaming industry.
The city is also considering plans to draw in a branch center to develop game contents and solutions and create models for the game industry and the global industry of cooperation.
In addition, the successful international game fair, “G-Star,” will be held regularly and an international game machine certification center for exporting arcade games will be launched at Dongseo University.
CCTV’s added to Buses in Busan
City buses in Busan will soon be armed with surveillance cameras to help protect drivers and passengers from crimes as well as handle emergencies more efficiently.
The city of Busan along with the Busan Intra Bus Transportation Association and the National Car Labor Union Federation have agreed to set up CCTV’s in 2,532 buses using a budget of 2.5 billion won by the second half of the year.
Each bus will have 4 CCTV’s installed to monitor the driver’s seat, the interior, the side exit, and the front.
The city is planning to ask citizens to cooperate with and understand the new measures which some may see as an invasion of their privacy rights.
