서울디지털산업단지
Having begun as the nation’s first export-oriented national industrial complex in the 1960s to grow into Seoul’s biggest industrial complex housing 12,000 enterprises and employing around 140,000 workers, G-Valley, also known as Seoul Digital Industrial Complex, is rising once again as an urban industrial complex specializing in information and communication, computer, software and network in line with the Fourth Industrial Complex. Once limited to export manufacturers, G-Valley is now open to non-manufacturing sectors including IT and knowledge-based industries to transform into a diversified cutting-edge complex providing a wide range of tax benefits and policy support. By leveraging its optimum location in the capital area and restructuring the industrial structure focused on venture capitals, R&D, cutting-edge, IT and knowledge-based industries, G-Valley is expected to position itself as Korea’s Silicon Valley based on a network linking industries, universities and research centers for the exchange of information and technology transfer.
