(JEONJU=Yonhap News) L-Tech International has relocated to Jeonju City, North Jeolla Province, from Guangdong, China.
It is the first case a Korean company has returned to Jeonju from a foreign location, excluding the Kaesong Industrial Complex.

L-Tech CEO Park Yong-in noted, "Although there were many difficulties, the local government is helping L-Tech with every step of the relocation process," adding, "Based on its past experience, the company will strengthen its know-how to grow into a world-class maker lighting fixtures, and thereby contribute to the local economy."
