SENAWANG, Malaysia - March 11, 1998 - Samsung Electronics Seremban Complex in Malaysia, today, officially handed over 81,400 pieces of 1-sen coins collected from its 7,000 employees over a period of 2-months.
The coins were officially handed over by Mr Kim Jong Ki to the New Straits Times Press Berhad's Assistant Group Editor, Encik Ahmad A. Talib during a brief ceremony at the Samsung Electronics Seremban Complex, today. Simultaneously, SUKOM souvenir prizes were also given out to fifteen (15) winners of the "Guess the 1-Sen" Competition, which was carried out among the three Samsung companies at the Complex to promote contribution to the national 1 Sen Fun Campaign.

Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Kim Jong Ki praised all Samsung employees for extending their support and cooperation in making the 1-Sen Fun Campaign a success. "Samsung believes in encouraging a sense of social responsibility among our employees and the 1 Sen Fun Campaign proved to be a good opportunity for employees to contribute to the less fortunate as well as place value in the 1 sen that they contribute. It also gave us [Samsung] the opportunity to promote and support the Commonwealth Games within our company," said Mr Kim.

The 1 Sen-Fun Campaign is organized by the New Straits Times and TV3 in conjunction with the Association of Banks Malaysia and the Association of Finance Companies Malaysia with support of Bank Negara, Sukom Ninety-Eight Berhad and Youth and Sports Ministry.
