JEC Group, the largest composites industry organisation in the world brings to light the growing importance that composites materials have in every industrial sector.

JEC President and CEO, Ms Frédérique Mutel, visited Seoul yesterday to share her analysis of the current and future trends with Korean press, industrialists, officials and academics.

“Every time I come to Seoul, I am always amazed by the dynamism of the Korean market regarding composites materials and innovation in general. I feel a unique economic vitality from what I call the ‘golden triangle’ formed by government, industry and research together with material sciences and engineering. The proof is the large number of participants we welcomed today. I hope that they grasped the current situation for composites materials as well as the challenges and competitions that we will have to overcome together. These are points of reflection that they will be able to pursue during the 10th JEC Asia next November 1-3, 2017 in Seoul,” she commented.

The conference was opened by Mr Fabien Penone, French Ambassador to the Republic of Korea. He welcomes the relocation of JEC Asia to Seoul and is looking forward to a promising event next November.

During the conference, prominent guest speakers also took the stage. Mr. Jung, President of the Korea Institute of Carbon Convergence Technology, discussed about the Carbon Industry in Jeonbuk. Finally, Mr. Kim, President of the Korean Society for composites materials presented the current states and prospects of composites materials in Korea.
