Traditionally, Daegu has been well-known as the educational and transportation center of the central and southern part of Korea, and has played a key role as one of the leading local provinces. Daegu has also served as a strategic destination for Korean fabric and fashion industries during the past few decades. Today, the Seongseo Industrial Complex houses a number of manufacturers in automobile parts and mechanical industries, sustaining its central role in leading the economy of the province.
