SEOUL Under Armour Boys Shoes Sale , May 7 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Park Geun-hye will hold an emergency meeting to hammer out countermeasures amid sluggish private consumption caused by the ferry sinking disaster.
Min Kyung-wook, spokesman of the presidential office, told reporters Wednesday that Park will hold a meeting on Friday to come up with measures to boost the weakening private consumption.
An attendance list will be Finance Minister Hyun Oh-seok, economy-related ministers, economic think tank chiefs and business representatives.
Hyun said Tuesday that last month's ferry sinking accident has had a more or less negative influence on consumption and service industry activity.
Retail sales, usage of cultural facilities and tourism have shown sluggishness since the passenger ferry Sewol capsized and sank off the country's southwestern coast on April 16, Hyun said.
A paroxysm of grief swept all over the country as two thirds of the 476 passengers aboard the ill-fated ship were high school students.
Memorial altars were set up nationwide to mourn the victims. Cheering at baseball stadiums has been prevented, and schools canceled class trips. Celebration ceremony for the Buddha's May 6 birthday was held to mourn the victims.
As of Wednesday, 269 people have been confirmed dead Under Armour Mens Shoes Sale , with 33 others still missing. No survivor has been reported since 174 people were rescued from the ship and sea on April 16.
