01 Introduce of 6th industry
The sixth industry is a combined industry which is mixed the first agriculture, forestry, and fishery industries, and the secondary manufacturing industries, and third service industries. The name comes from the 6th industry in the sense of 1 industry x 2 industry x 3 industry =6 industry.

The 6th industry, based on all tangible or intangible resources present in the countryside, implies a new value added activity by linking agriculture, food, specialty manufacturing, processing and distribution, culture, experience, tourism, and services.

More creativity and imagination in agricultural products can lead to the development of different types of processed products (food, medicines, health products, household items, etc.) and tourism experience services.

Through this process, we can create new jobs, realize productive welfare, and establish a foundation for boosting the local economy.

For example, the First industry of agriculture, the production of products using the special products it produces (secondary industry), and the creation of services (third industry) such as tourism programs.

One of the most popular examples is the Kangyang Alps village. Rural areas created a pure self-supporting festival by adding imagination to the daily life in a farming village.

In the same place, the local residents hold the Summer World Cucurbit Festival and the Winter Chilgapsan Ice Fountain Festival. Through this event, they provide the customer to creating local interesting things (see, enjoy, and eat). They lead the 6th industry in this way.
