(SUWON=Yonhap News) Yellow Sea Free Economic Zone (YESFEZ) Authority signed an investment MOU on September 27 with Betech, the semiconductor facility manufacturer, and Cubit Pte. Lte., a Singaporean semiconductor equipment wholesaler.
Based on the MOU, investors including Cubit will spend USD 20 million for Betech to buy land of 3,300 ㎡ in Pyeongtaek Business & Industry Complex (BIX) and build the plant by early 2020.
Betech is expecting to achieve increased sales of KRW 50 billion for the next five years through the investment.
