Manager Choi Jun-bum from Jeonju City attended CES 2020 held in Las Vegas on January 7-10.
Jeonju is currently exploring ways to solve
the urban problems caused by urbanization and create a sustainable city. To
solve such problems, the city felt the need to build a smart city with the new
technologies that lead Industry 4.0.
Jeonju City established a department
exclusively for smart city last year, and it came to CES with the university
presidents, relevant officials, and the CEOs of companies with the goal to make
a privatized cooperation system together, creating a smart city with its own style.
It is currently doing various projects to
solve various urban problems such as transportation, environment, and housing,
such as planting 10 million trees, resolving the heat island issue in urban
areas, repairing vacant houses, and resolving parking issues.
Choi said, "Based on what we saw and
learned in CES 2020, we will develop local ICT industry and businesses, and
promote a virtuous cycle of smart city created especially for Jeonju where
companies, universities, technology and people are combined to revitalize the
economy and create jobs."
