Dear fellow members of the Bank of Korea,

Today is our first day of work in 2017, and I would like to begin by expressing my sincere appreciation to all of you, for so faithfully carrying out your duties last year. At the opening ceremony for each new year, we always resolve to show renewed spirits of determination, but this year I think even more extraordinary resolutions are called for than in the past.
