This event served as a momentum to effectively expand the status of Incheon as an international city as well as publicizing capabilities of small but strong companies of Incheon whereas it has been poorly recognized in international community despite their strengths such as chosen as Incheon Free Economic Zone and the 17th Asian Games in 2014.
An official at the Incheon City Government said, “We are extremely happy to successfully complete the event, which was first of its kind among local governments. We gained confidence.” The official also noted that the municipal government will evolve the exhibition as a means of regular publicity for expanding overseas markets through close collaboration with small but strong companies in Incheon.
