It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Global Photovoltaic Conference 2017 (GPVC2017) to be held in March 15-17, 2017 at Gwangju, Kimdaejung Convention Center(KCC) in Korea. Gwangju is the leading city of the Honam Region, and also city of Culture and the Arts. KCC is a landmark of Gwangju which is available for the various conferences and exhibitions by their versatile functional space and a variety of convenient facilities. We are all aware that photovoltaics is the most promising energy technology that is truly renewable, sustainable, and environment friendly. Our long-term dream as PV specialists is achieving the grid parity as early as possible, which is apparently a very challenging task. I am hoping that the GPVC2017 will help PV community to achieve our goal by active interactions between conference participants. GPVC2017 will be a place for sharing new technological development, exchanging innovative ideas, promoting friendship, and experiencing new culture. The GPVC2017 committee and I are looking forward to seeing you in Gwangju in March 15-17, 2017.
