A state-run environmental technology organization held a fair to promote the local green industry and improve access to overseas markets, officials said Tuesday.

The Environment Ministry and its affiliate organization Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute introduced the strength of the Korean environment industry and environmental projects carried out overseas. 

The fair particularly stressed a number of successful cases, such as the river restoration projects in Algeria held by Daewoo Engineering & Construction and the air quality projects by POSCO ICT.

The KEITI has been active in boosting the overseas projects of local environmental works. As of last year, the organization supported more than 260 environmental projects in 75 countries, officials said.

The state-run body has put efforts into encouraging the local industry to launch global environmental businesses by offering information of the international environmental market via online and off-line expositions and providing a much-needed network through various events, they added.

KEITI also supports the research and development of core components and equipment for the businesses.
