##3D_LAYER##The RRC consists of 15 to 20 members –mostly civilians and several government ministers with a co-chair with the PM and a civilian, in which civilian members play dominant roles in discussion and decision making.##3D_TEXT:DaeYong Choi and (2014).

Its first step was to eliminate existing out-dated regulations and policy regulations for overcoming the crisis and economic recovery.##3D_TEXT:DaeYong Choi and (2014).

In order to achieve the goal the RRC and the PMO accelerated the intensity and speed of the drastic reform with putting more concentrated energy and time of no holidays and over-night works, mobilizing the whole of central government ministries and agencies. The reform process was described as repeated reviews, tugs of the war between the RRC and regulating ministries, feed-backs, confirmations, and follow-ups for implementation with ##3D_LAYER##the performance result to achieve the target.##3D_TEXT:DaeYong Choi and (2014).

[Results of the Regulatory Review Plan in 1998]





Source: White Paper on Regulatory Reform (1999).



##3D_LAYER##In 1998, According to the regulatory review plan, a proposal to abolish 23 acts (Merchandise Coupons Act and family ritual related acts) and 340 revised acts was submitted to the State Council. An additional four revised acts, including the Attorney-at-Law act, were submitted to the State Council in 1999. Such sweeping regulatory reform was possible due to wide public support, the President’s leadership, and the country’s implementation capacity. Clearly, public support and the President’s firm leadership are important factors in regulatory reform.##3D_TEXT:DaeYong Choi and (2014).

Simultaneously,, the RRC tackled core regulations which were, until then, intact in the hands of the strong bureaucracy. ##3D_LAYER##These core regulations were summarized as follows: 1) entry barriers in the financial service sector; 2) restrictions on foreign direct investments; 3) restrictions on housing construction; 4) revitalization of venture businesses and start-ups; and 5) supply-centered regulations in professional services.##3D_TEXT:DaeYong Choi and (2014).
