Major economic investments of 7 to 8 trillion won (US$ 5.82 to 6.66) will support this strategy in the next seven years to structure and reinforce the local Composites industry.

Within this context, after three successful JEC Asia shows in Seoul, Eric Pierrejean officially announced the new name of the event, JEC KOREA, as of 2020, in order to promote the Korean composites sector and also to reinforce Seoul’s positioning as THE place to meet for the composites industry in the Asia Pacific region.
