In recent years, Xi'an and South Korea have had frequent exchanges in the fields of economy, trade, industry, and humanities, and yielded fruitful results.

Xi'an has always attached great importance to the investment and development of South Korean enterprises, and will continue to optimize its business environment to provide more convenient conditions for corporate development, the mayor said.

People from South Korean enterprises expressed that Xi'an possesses strong scientific and educational capabilities, a complete industrial system, and an ample reserve of talents. The city also has an open and inclusive urban environment, and broad prospects for development, making it the preferred destination for foreign investment and development.

Over the years, with strong support from the city government, South Korean companies that have settled in Xi'an have achieved significant development. They intend to further increase investment in the city, deepen practical cooperation in more areas, and achieve mutually beneficial cooperation at a higher level.

During the visit, Ye also met with Xing Haiming, the Chinese Ambassador to South Korea, and attended a seminar focusing on South Korean semiconductor companies that have settled in the Xi'an High-tech Industries Development Zone. At this event, Ye introduced Xi'an's investment environment and industrial advantages.
