Vice Chairman Lee remarked, “The ecosystems for innovation are going beyond regional boundaries and are being interconnected and expanded” and added, “Innovative technologies are breaking down the silos among businesses of our industry and business sectors, and such technologies are becoming key factors that determine the fate of companies.”

He stressed, “A failure to aggressively embrace and lead innovation in exchange for avoiding minor risks can result in missing out on seizing promising opportunities.”
