    Gyeonggi-do has been a po­lit­i­cally im­por­tant area since 18 BCE, when Korea was di­vided into three na­tions dur­ing the Three King­doms pe­riod. Ever since King Onjo, the founder of Baekje (one of the three king­doms), founded the gov­ern­ment in Wirye­seong of Hanam, the Han River Val­ley was ab­sorbed into Goguryeo in the mid-fifth cen­tury, and be­came Silla's ter­ri­tory in the year 553 (the 14th year of King Jin­he­ung).[nb 1] Af­ter­ward, the cur­rent lo­ca­tion of Gyeonggi-do, one of the nine states of Later Silla, was called Hansanju. The Gyeonggi re­gion started to rise as the cen­tral re­gion of Goryeo as King Taejo of Goryeo (the king­dom fol­low­ing Silla) set up the cap­i­tal in Gaesong. Since 1018 (the 9th year of Goryeo's King Hyeon­jong), this area has been of­fi­cially called "Gyeonggi". Dur­ing the Joseon, which was founded after the Goryeo, King Taejo of Joseon set the cap­i­tal in Hanyang, while re­struc­tur­ing Gyeonggi's area to in­clude Gwangju, Suwon, Ye...

    Gyeonggi Province is in the west­ern cen­tral re­gion of the Ko­rean Penin­sula, which is ver­ti­cally sit­u­ated in North­east Asia and is be­tween east lon­gi­tude of 126 and 127, and north lat­i­tude of 36 and 38. Its di­men­sion is 10% of Korea's ter­ri­tory, 10,171 square kilo­me­tres (3,927 sq mi). It is in con­tact with 86 kilo­me­tres (53 mi) of cease-fire line to the north, 413 kilo­me­tres (257 mi) of coast­line to the west, Gang­won-do to the east, Chungcheong­buk-do and Chungcheong­nam-do to the south, and has Seoul, the cap­i­tal of the Re­pub­lic of Korea, in its cen­ter. Its provin­cial gov­ern­ment is in Suwon, but some of its gov­ern­ment build­ings are in Ui­jeongbu for the ad­min­is­tra­tive con­ve­niences of the north­ern re­gion.

    Gyeonggi-do has shown a rapid in­crease in pop­u­la­tion due to the mod­ern­iza­tion and ur­ban­iza­tion of the Re­pub­lic of Korea. Its pop­u­la­tion has in­creased from 2,748,765 in 1960 to 3,296,950 in 1970; 4,933,862 in 1980; 6,619,629 in 1992; 8,982,298 in 2000; 12,071,884 in 2010; and 13,449,499 in 2020. In 2010 there were 4,527,282 house­holds, with an av­er­age of 3 peo­ple per fam­ily. There were 6,112,339 males and 5,959,545 fe­males. The pop­u­la­tion den­sity was 1,119 people/km2, al­most dou­ble the na­tional av­er­age of 486 people/km2. Ex­clud­ing the two met­ro­pol­i­tan cities (Seoul and In­cheon), the most heav­ily pop­u­lated area as of 2010 is Suwon (1,104,681) fol­lowed by Goyang (1,076,179), Seong­nam (996,524), Yon­gin (891,708), Bucheon (890,875) and Ansan (753,862). The low­est pop­u­lated area in 2010 was Yeon­cheon County (45,973), fol­lowed by Gapyeong County (59,916) and Yang­pyeong County(72,595).

    As the back­bone of Seoul in the means of man­u­fac­tur­ing com­plex, Gyeonggi-do is evenly de­vel­oped in heavy in­dus­try (elec­tron­ics, ma­chine, heavy and chem­i­cal in­dus­try, steel), light in­dus­try (tex­tile), and farm, live­stock and fish­eries in­dus­try. Due to the in­flu­ence of re­cent high wages, the weight of man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­tries has de­creased in Korea's econ­omy. Gyeonggi-do is mak­ing ef­forts in many ways to im­prove and mod­ern­ize the con­ven­tional in­dus­try struc­ture, re­sult­ing in quick growth of in­no­v­a­tive small and medium-sized en­ter­prises such as U-JIN Tech Corp.. Gyeonggi-do is un­spar­ingly in­vest­ing in the pro­mo­tion of ser­vice in­dus­tries re­lated to soft com­pet­i­tive power such as state-of-the-art IT in­dus­try, de­sign­ing, con­ven­tions and tourism, along with its great leap as a com­mer­cial hub in North­east Asia using the Pyeong­taek Harbor. Be­sides this, it is fa­mous for its spe­cial local prod­ucts such as Icheon r...

    Gyeonggi-do con­sists of 28 cities (spe­cial: 7, nor­mal: 21) and three counties.This is be­cause many coun­ties were el­e­vated to city sta­tus owing to the in­flu­ence of Seoul's new town de­vel­op­ment plan. Spe­cial cities are es­pe­cially con­cen­trated in the south­ern area of Gyeonggi-do. Listed below is each en­tity's name in Eng­lish, Hangul and Hanja.

    Gyeonggi-do's prox­im­ity to Seoul, South Korea's cap­i­tal, and In­cheon, its sec­ond-busiest port, has con­tributed to its ex­tremely well-de­vel­oped trans­porta­tion in­fra­struc­ture. It is close to both In­cheon In­ter­na­tional Air­port, South Korea's main in­ter­na­tional gate­way and busiest air­port, and Gimpo In­ter­na­tional Air­port, its sec­ond-busiest air­port. Use of water trans­porta­tion from the har­bor at Pyeong­taekis also high.

    Gyeonggi-do is ac­tively in­vest­ing in ed­u­ca­tion to fos­ter a tal­ented pop­u­la­tion suit­able for the glob­al­ized econ­omy. It is pro­mot­ing the open­ing of local cam­puses of rep­utable uni­ver­si­ties as well as es­tab­lish­ing spe­cial pur­pose high schools for high-qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion. It has also founded and op­er­ates at Paju the largest do­mes­tic "Eng­lish vil­lage" for ed­u­ca­tion in the Eng­lish lan­guage, as well as vil­lages in Ansan and Yang­pyeong.
