To strive to invigorate the local economy jointly with the City of Jeongeup in order to enhance social value through win-win cooperation
To provide spaces that remain idle to young startup owners to form unique signature streetscapes
SK nexilis, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SKC (President LEE Wan-jae) as one specializing in copper foil production, plans to strive to invigorate the local economy jointly with the City of Jeongeup, including the creation of tourist attractions and provision of support for small store owners in order to enhance their competitiveness.
On June 30, SK nexilis President Kim Yeong-tae signed a business agreement with the City of Jeongeup for the establishment of the groundwork for a win-win success for the local community in a ceremony held at Jeongeup City Hall. Under the agreement, the company plans to form a joint task force to strive for the aforementioned end.
Jeongeup, where SK nexilis has its domestic production foothold, boasts beautiful natural scenery and is easily accessible from across the country via KTX or otherwise, but visitors have said that the place does not have many attractions that they can spend their time enjoying. In this regard, SK nexilis and the City of Jeongeup will work together to create contents designed to maximize the city’s attractions.
First of all, the plan includes the formation of unique signature streetscapes in Jeongeup. They will invite young startup owners to run pop-up shops, using store spaces that were left idle.
They will also run a program designed to provide support for small store owners so they may grow in the signature streetscapes. The plan includes educational sessions designed to enhance their business capabilities, one-on-one coaching sessions, provision of relevant consulting, and support for space remodeling.
They will also periodically hold a Food Truck Festival, inviting those that have earned fame for their specialty food. Development of tracking courses along the routes where visitors can relish the natural beauty of Naejangsan Mountain, walkathon, etc. will also be included in the plan.
Their plan also includes running inexpensive tourist houses by remodeling dilapidated motels taken over from the current owners.
Commenting on the matter, SK nexilis President Kim Yeong-tae said, “Jeongeup is where we have built our business capability. We will strive to contribute to the invigoration of the local economy and enhance social value as a member of the local community by fulfilling our part of the agreement signed with the City of Jeongeup.”
