Since the development of the Changwon National Industrial Complex in 1974, Changwon has grown as an economic center of Korea. However, Changwon city has no any financial or economic index to indicate the current economic situation of Changwon. Lack of financial capabilities at local government level is Changwon city's Achilles'' heel. So Changwon city has to enhance the financial infrastructure. That's the reason why Changwon Chamber of Commerce & Industry developed the Changwon Mechatronics Index. The Changwon Mechatronics Index(CMI), which was developed and launched in May 2010 by Changwon Chamber of Commerce & Industry, contributes to assess the local economic situation of Changwon city as the center of mechatronics industry in Korea.
The Changwon Mechatronics Index(CMI) has been operated by the Changwon Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The city government of Changwon has supported the operation of the Changwon Mechatronics Index financially. Changwon Mechatronics Index(CMI) became the first local based stock index in Korea.
