Gwangju’s job creation project to gain momentum with car manufacturing factory constrution


The construction of a car manufacturing factory will start in Gwangju tomorrow in an effort to realize the first co-prosperity regional job creation project in the country.


According to the Gwangju Metropolitan Government, the joint venture, Gwangju Global Motors, will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for its automobile plant in the city's Bitgreen Green Industrial Complex on Thursday.


As Gwangsan district approved the construction in consultation with Hampyeong County, where the range of industrial complex is included, all administrative procedures needed to start construction have been completed.


The permitted site includes some 85,900 square meters of the complex. Hyundai Engineering will take charge of the construction and it is expected to be completed by April 2021.


The finished car plant will produce an estimated 100,000 units per year and create 1,000 job positions.


However, the labor sector is expected to boycott the ceremony claiming the City only sends gestures ahead of "photo-taking events” without proper solutions to the labor issues.
