Soaring technology-intensive future growth engines to the world
Having led Korea’s economic growth as the country’s industrial capital for the past 50 years, Ulsan has suffered tarnishing of its reputation as it was given the bad name of a “city of pollution.”
At this, the local government promoted an extensive environmental restoration project and, as a result, Taehwagang River, which flows across the city, has been restored to an ecological river with top-class water quality and also has the largest habitat of white Herons in Korea. The air quality has also been improved to a level on par with those of advanced countries. As such, Ulsan has been reborn an eco-city.
