The Games Industry Promotion Policy in the Government is to support the production cost support. This part is revealed in the government budget this year. Korea Content Promotion Agency (Condor Circuine) This year s game headquarters budget is a total of 60.6 billion won, and the amount assigned to the game production support is W24.3bn, which is 35% higher than last year, and within three years of inception, startup and indie games It is W27.1bn if combined W28bn in the supported game enterprise fostering. This corresponds to 44.7% of the total budget of the Condor Game Headquarters. Support projects in each regional promotion agency also have a support project.
The reason why the government game industry promotion policy is focused on production cost support is that the business direction that is held in the early days of the game industry is still maintained. The period of the government promoted the game industry promotion policy in the government is the 1999, established a game comprehensive support center, which is a telephone industry agency, a Korean Games Industry Promotion Agency, which is integrated into the Condor. In the late 90s, the Korean game industry was in the early days, so the project to support the production cost directly from the government and raised the excellent game.
Currently, however, the game industry environment has changed a lot. The domestic game industry has reached maturity beyond the early days and growth in the last 20 years. According to the game white paper, in 2000, the domestic game market was 835.8 billion won, but in 2019, it was rapidly growing in 15,575 billion won. Currently, the domestic game industry has not yet supported the production cost directly from the government, and the game production cost was also increased enough to be difficult to afford to the government budget.
The way to directly support the production cost in the government is often not linked to a small-sized game that can be done by a real demand. One of the parts of the small and medium game is the burden is the documentation required in the process of being supported. Game production support business is also required as a business that is taxed, as well as progress, and document work, which is tailored to the specifications after completion. In the case of a small game company, there is a case that one of the production workforce is in a situation where the workers will be burdened in the workforce and time.
This part can produce a side effect that the game production support business can be operated differently from the purpose of being able to cover the jade. In 2017, I was assigned to a game of the game in a game, which was assigned to a new game of 1.7 billion won for 3 months and driven business to a particular company, and the post-management of the Cancel Consistency for the contents of the contents, including the game, There was intellectual point. In practice, it is possible to confirm that each game service is displayed differently when the game creation support project support game list, respectively in September and October this year,
What I want to talk about this is not to reducing the game industry promotion budget. The budgetable budget every year is to be limited, and if it is a similar scale budget, it is time to trouble changing the business direction towards the efficiency of the current industrial environment. One example is detergent support for game development companies. In the case of overseas, there is a tax deduction for game development, including Canadian Ontario and in France, and is also considering additional taxation in the UK. In Germany, there is no direct detergent support of the federal government, but it repays the development costs in the main content promotion agency.
In addition, Condenia has published a research report on improving the content enterprise tax support system, including games in January this year. According to this, the majority of the game, participated in the investigation, did not know the number of tax support systems that are currently operating, In addition, additional detergent support for R & D expenses and relatively relatively conventional duration of the production period is recommended that detergent support system is required to reflect the characteristics of long games. Then, it can be a way to increase policy efficiency to inform the game industry that the game is not familiar, or discovering the policy that matches the game industry.
In addition to detergent support, as a Chinese pane problem, it is necessary to resolve the problem of solving the problem that should be solved through the Korean pandemic diplomacy, or to consider the global and abroad major game market environments that have reached saturated, It can also be a method to give or help export. Way to support the game production costs directly in the government like the game certifications previously mentioned conversion policy direction indirect support than the current market environment and the domestic game industry scale, the old system because it directly supported in the government do not fit, and thus the budget allocation back in line that you need to be.
Con epicenter in the parliamentary audit this year was pointed out to include mismanagement, meaningless budget issues used throughout the game as well as content promotion policies and support programs. Organized this year and overall trouble so now cone epicenter to establish next year s planned depth for the promotion policy direction for the modern, and the time has come to discuss a prospective change direction.
