Experts are calling for the elimination of local newspaper promotion funds among the 55 state-run funds in existence.

Among these funds, the military welfare fund ranked lowest in terms of fund operation.

The Ministry of Planning and Budget announced the results of its fund maintenance and management evaluation 2006 containing the above information yesterday.

The results of the survey conducted by 67 evaluators composed of college professors, accountants, and other private experts will be reflected in next year’s fund operation policy.

The evaluators recommended that the local newspaper promotion fund be abolished by 2010 after back-up plans are put in place, and that some of its functions be integrated into the newspaper development fund.
