SEOUL, Sept. 1 (Yonhap) -- President Park Geun-hye on Thursday pledged to help the broadcasting industry create "quality and wholesome" content through deregulation, stressing such a move has generated massive economic gains and enhanced national prestige.

In her video message to a ceremony marking the 53rd Broadcasting Day, Park touted the broadcasting industry as "a center for producing top-notch content and an outpost for hallyu," or Korean pop culture.

"The government will stamp out unreasonable regulations by listening to the voices of those in the field and will do its utmost to establish an ecosystem for the production of good quality content," she said.

The president also pointed out that dramas, documentaries and other show programs that have been produced by local broadcasters have not only entertained people but also created tremendous economic value.
