  • Welcome to Ulsan, Korea,

    a global green industrial city.

  • Strategically located, Ulsan has convenient access to both land and sea. Other major cities in East Asia such as Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Osaka are just a two-hour flight away.


    Ulsan is the first city in the Korean Peninsula to experience the daily sunrise; it is home to picturesque mountains, clean rivers and the deep blue East Sea. Over the past 40 years, Ulsan has pursued vigorous sustainable development focusing on both economic development and environmental preservation.


    As one of the four large manufacturing cities in Asia, Ulsan remains the heart and soul of Korean industries, continually advancing the Korean economy. It has formed international clusters of automobile, shipbuilding and petrochemical industries; it also aims to be a global green industrial city through developing industries dealing with secondary batteries, environmental technologies and equipment, and renewable energy.


    Ulsan will continue to take a leading role in Korea through sustainable economic development, compassionate welfare policies, and high quality cultural services.


    I look forward to your strong support for Ulsan in the years ahead as it is truly a great city to live in. Thank you for your interest in Ulsan.
