As Nodong-myeon borders on Gwangju City with population of 1.3 million and Naju has 11 universities and a number of vocational high schools close to the city, it is easy to acquire excellent technical professionals. Accordingly, it is possible to create a machine assembly complex focusing on technology-intensive industries.
As far as transportation is concerned, Naju is a transport hub that is passed through by vehicles operating in the 12 cities or counties in the southwestern region of the country. With National Roads 1, 13, and 23 crossing around it, Naju plans the construction of two new roads: the national road bypass and Nampyeong Bypass. Honam Expressway and Honam Line railway are right by. Gwangju Advanced Industrial Complex, Hanam Regional Industrial Complex, and Mokpo Daebul Industrial Complex are within 20 to 30 minutes’ drive away. Overall, the city boasts better transport infrastructure such as air, land, and sea than any other part of the Jeolla provinces. Besides, the city is implementing the upgrade of the Songjeong-Mokpo Honam Line to a double-track railway, the expansion of Mokpo Port, and the construction of Mokpo New Outer Terminal with 4 30,000-ton berths.
As far as water supply is concerned, the Yeongsangang flowing through the city makes it easy to get industrial water, and using the Juamho Lake as a drinking water source, it is very easy to get water from the Najuho Lake, the Jiseokgang River etc.
Given the favorable conditions as above, the city is actively implementing Songwol housing site, logistics center, bio industry, and natural dyeing industry that center on Naju Regional Industrial Complex and the City Hall.
