In his New Year's address on Jan. 4, Kim Seung-yeon, chairman of Hanwha Group, said, "The year 2020 was simply a time when the whole world was struggling and shrinking. I would like to thank executives and employees who have been firmly driving Hanwha despite the chaos and crisis caused by the COVID-19 crisis last year."
Chairman Kim said. "Hanwha was no exception, but it has sometimes stopped and sometimes endured times of crisis by sharing pain. It's a time when we can't help but be exhausted, but let's overcome this moment by encouraging each other with a 'together' heart," he said.
Commenting that the next two to three years will be a time of uncertainty in the industry's overall landscape, Chairman Kim said, "Even at this time, we should take the "most Hanwha-like path" to overcome the crisis as responsible members of society and lead a new paradigm of sustainable management."
Kim stressed, "Let`s carry out our vision of the future of coexistence and leap forward with society without a hitch."
The chairman added, "We hope that new businesses such as future mobility, aerospace, green hydrogen energy, and digital financial solutions will also preempt future growth opportunities for the world."
