Firstly, Samsung Electronics will work to advance into a company that leads the global electronics industry. To this end, the company has drawn up plans to maintain its lead over competitors in key business areas, including the mobile phone, TV, and memory businesses, while strengthening basic competencies in promoted business areas, including the home appliance, printer, camera, and system LSI businesses.

The company will also strengthen the foundation of emerging business areas, including medical devices, and rapidly develop its B2B competencies. The focus on the development of distinctive competencies in soft competitiveness, branding, and intellectual property, will continue.

Secondly, Samsung Electronics will respond swiftly to change and risk, an intrinsic competency within the company. This will be aimed at enhancing strategic flexibility, speed, and efficiency, as well as increasing global SCM competiveness.

Thirdly, Samsung Electronics will continue to make efforts to solidify its reputation among consumers and gain wider acceptance in society as a trusted and admired company.
