Is the 'Limitation of Convenience Distance' a collusion?

These days, I can see that one house across from the house is a convenience store. The number of convenience stores doubled from 20,000 in 2011 to 40,000 in March this year. There are one convenience store for every 1,200 people, almost twice as many as Japan, which is called the convenience store heaven. As a result, the government has come up with measures to deal with these days, as it is said that even if a convenience store is run, the amount of money it takes is less than the part-timer. Let's take a look at this question today. Reporter Kang Dong-won, the key to today's plan is not to open a new convenience store within a certain distance. Didn't you see this as collusion in the past? 토토사이트

[Reporter]
As you said, since 1994, the convenience store industry has enacted and enforced a self-regulatory rule that stores of new convenience stores cannot open within 80 meters of their existing stores. Then in 2000, the FTC invalidated the regulation, judging that it was an act of collusion between companies.

Does it mean that the FTC has changed its criteria for collusion? 

[Reporter]
That's what you might think. But unlike in the past, the distance between convenience stores this time has not been clearly stated, i.e. we can't open a new convenience store within 80 meters. Instead, it says, "We decide by considering the characteristics of the business, the floating population and the designated distance for cigarette retailers."

What's the designated distance for a cigarette retailer? 

[Reporter]
This refers to the current tobacco business law that limits the distance between cigarette vendors to 50 meters. Under this law, each local government sets a ordinance and permits tobacco dealers to be 50 to 100 meters away. The convenience store industry believes that the new convenience store cannot open within 50 to 100 meters.

I see, but that's practically the limit. 

[Reporter]
That's right. They're criticized for expressing numbers in words. They say it's anti-market because it prevents them from entering the market. Let's listen to it. 

Lee Joon-gil / Senior Advisor at the Legal Corporation (former Fair Trade Commission)
"The Fair Trade Commission itself was created to protect the normal operation of the market economy. But the system for convenience stores is actually not about restricting competition, but about protecting competition."

[anchor]
So, can you see that the industry voluntarily created these regulations to avoid criticism that the government is overly involved in the market? 

[Reporter]
In fact, it's been a long time since the problems of the convenience store's deteriorating business. So, the commission, been grappling for a long time but fixing this problem, because last month, and not make a decision, Moon Jae-in president to support a convenience store industry.Comprehensive improvement of the became a crucial instrument that it turns out that they're.
