South Korean officials have designated the country’s North Gyeongsang Province as a “Special Industrial Hemp Free Zone,” aiming to make it a center of smart farming and high-tech, bio-based industries. Province Governor Lee Chul-woo said the effort marks the opening of industrialization based on the hemp plant in South Korea.

“This special regulatory zone has a special meaning different from that of the existing special zone in that it seeks a rational industrialization plan for medical hemp,” the Governor said in an announcement this week. The goal is to develop extraction and refining operations to make products for export, Gov. Lee said.
