The 2013 Globalization Excellent Management Award recognizes outstanding companies and local governments which lead globalization in the rapidly changing economic circumstances.

Designation of the county as a biosphere reserve by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization earned high scores with higher brand values for agricultural, marine and livestock products.

Governor Lee noted that maximized brand values based on innovative and creative thinking help to lead the way and find new hopes in the era of unlimited global competition.

Governor also held a promotional event in a L.A. store where Gochang’s products are sold, and had an interview with LA Radio to promote the county.
