Director Shin says, “Recently, USA and Europe use soil fumigation agent to reduce the number and cost of disease and pest control, receiving big acceptance and recognized as natural, but, the awareness is not spread in Korea yet”. “Korea’s agricultural environment is unlike foreign countries that only count economic feasibility but has strong characteristics of cultural community, so it seems that the speed of change is slow.”
Director Donghyeok Shin of global chemical company, Arkema, who worked in sales, marketing and trade, etc. in Korea for more than 23 years, told how he felt about our farming and agricultural industry.
Therefore, he emphasized that, “For the development of agriculture in Korea, efforts shall be given to increase the advantages of our agricultural sector and change from old conventions.” “We shall gather wisdom to lead to positive change in our agriculture in the fast changing trend.”
