“Business environment has been deteriorating more than ever with the nation’s slowing economy showing no sign of a change,” he said while wrapping up a three-day annual forum held at its research and development center in Songdo, Incheon. “We have to pay attention to secure new business opportunity by forging cooperation with (suppliers of) other materials and to strategically respond to such change.”
In the annual forum, Posco executives and employees discussed the future of material business in line with transformation in mobility, the company said.
Choi took the chairman post last year, stressing on Posco’s community role beyond pursuing profit.
