FKCCI and French Delegation Visit South Gyeongsang Province to discuss Cooperation in Aerospace Industry

On March 17th, the French ambassador to Korea, H.E. Mr. Philippe Lefort and FKCCI, represented by its CEO, Mr. Henri Bacquet, went on a visit to South Gyeongsang province to explore opportunities for expanding exchanges and cooperation. The delegation included company members of FKCCI based in the province, such as Airbus, Arkema, and Bolloré Logistics, to be given opportunities to engage in fruitful discussions with local authorities.

During the visit, Governor Park Wan-su, H.E. Mr. Lefort and Mr. Bacquet discussed French-Korean cooperation and agreed to promote exchanges between France and the province, which is the hub of the country's aerospace industry, accounting for 68% of domestic aerospace industry production. The Governer stated that South Gyeongsang Province plans to open the Korea Aerospace Administration, modeled after NASA, within the year. He expressed the hope for exchanges and cooperation with French institutions related to aerospace such as CNES.

FKCCI and the South Gyeongsang province are currently discussing signing a MOU to strengthen their provisional collaboration and commitment to working together towards common goals by leveraging their respective strengths and expertise.

For closer exchanges and cooperation between the South Gyeongsang province and France in the aerospace industry, the province plans to participate in the "2023 Paris Air Show" in June this year to exchange with French aerospace companies. The delegation has also committed to facilitating exchanges between the French region Occitanie, the location of French Airbus headquarters and aerospace R&D companies, and South Gyeongsang Province. Airbus is an important economic actor for Korea, accounting for more than 6,000 jobs creation.

The French delegation also visited the headquarters of Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) and met with Mr. Park Dong-sik, Mayor of Sacheon. During a luncheon meeting, they discussed the development of the aerospace industry in France and Sacheon City and agreed to strengthen cooperation between KAI and French companies.
