Overview

The Die and Mould industry is a major export industry as well as a key industry which is the basis for manufacturing. Gwangju provides assistance in technology development, overseas marketing and sensitive high tech equipment to nurture the die and mould industry. Recently the city has been planning to build a die and mould cluster complex and establish a center for die and mould test production. By doing so, it is prepared to provide comprehensive services in die and mould technology from design, processing and building to selling.
