"South Korea is a country with spectacular growth. Every composites-using industry is represented in this country, including automotive, aerospace, electronics and sports & leisure," said JEC Group president and CEO Frederique Mutel.
"JEC Asia 2017 is the first French industrial trade fair to be organized in Seoul. Both the support from institutions and the enthusiasm of local and international manufacturers augur well for this tenth JEC Asia. JEC Asia is also hosting the 12th International Carbon Festival (ICF), which is organized by KCTECH, a competitive cluster in the Jeonju region, and it looks as though there will also be a strong turnout from the professionals in that industry," said French ambassador to Korea Fabien Penone.
"A specific feature of this country is that it reaps the benefit of a positive synergy from the 'golden triangle' that is formed by the government authorities with research & industry and material science & techniques. These three areas are virtuous circle models that help to develop industry as a whole. So after signing a memorandum of understanding with the carbon cluster of the Jeonju region in 2014, we are now pleased to also have the support of the Seoul municipality, for which we signed a memorandum of understanding in early February 2017," added Mutel.
"The city of Seoul is making great efforts to help us set up this international event, which will welcome participants from more than 40 countries on November 1-3, 2017. Moreover, Seoul has the ideal infrastructure to welcome exhibitors and visitors with the high quality that characterises all JEC Group events,” adds JEC Asia director Christian Strassburger.
JEC Group continues its development in Asia. After the 2008 launch in Singapore of JEC Asia, the annual composite trade fair for the Asia-Pacific region, the JEC Group set up offices in Singapore in 2016. (RR)
