JEC Group, the largest composites industry organization in the world brings to light the growing importance composites materials have in every industrial sector. JEC President and CEO, Ms Frédérique MUTEL, came to Seoul on Wednesday July 12, 2017, to share her analysis of the current and future trends with Korean press, industrialists, officials and academics.

“Every time I come to Seoul, I am always amazed by the dynamism of the Korean market regarding Composites Materials and Innovation in general. I feel a unique economic vitality from what I call the “golden triangle” formed by Government, Industry and Research together with Material Sciences and Engineering. The proof is the large number of participants we welcomed today. I hope that they grasped the current situation for Composites Materials as well as the challenges and competitions that we will have to overcome together. These are points of reflection that they will be able to pursue during the 10th JEC Asia next November 1-3, 2017 in Seoul.” she comments.
