The Light of New Year is Shining

Jakarta—Routine activity at the beginning of new year becomes a moment to gather with KORINDO Group’s big family. The 2018 opening event was attended by the Chairman of KORINDO Group, Mr. Eun Ho Seung, Senior Vice Chairman Mr. Robert Seung, the board of directors, and all of the employees and was held on last Tuesday (2/1) in Wisma Korindo, Pancoran, South Jakarta.

The event was themed “New Spirit in 2018”. The new year opening event was filled with a welcoming speech from Senior Vice Chairman Mr. Robert Seung, the granting of awards to outstanding employees, joint prayer, and informal gathering.

“The light of new year is shining. I wish you a happy new year. May this new year bring many blessings for all of us,” said Mr. Robert while opening the event.

In this speech at the start of 2018, the Senior Vice Chairman delivered motivational words to all of the employees of KORINDO Group to plan for the new year. He gave reminders that although a number of matters from last year must still be sorted out, the whole KORINDO Group’s big family must unite their hearts to gain the best reward. “We must synergize the network of internal human resources, so we would be able to maximize the capacity of the existing capabilities,” he said.

Mr. Robert stated a hope held by all parties. The hope that 2018 would be better than last year is a hope from all of us. The market condition in 2018 is predicted to be better. On the other hand, the restructuring should run simultaneously with the invesments for the company’s future. If possible, business in alternative energy field will be strengthened in 2018 so KORINDO could contribute to meet electricity needs in Indonesia, in addition to taking a role in environment preservation.

The development of this new business is truly necessary for KORINDO Group’s long term business in the future. And the business is in line with the market needs in Indonesia. However, there certainly needs to be big investments as well as support and participation from all of the family members of KORINDO Group to save cost in various things.

On this occasion in the beginning of the year, Mr. Robert Beomsoo Seung also predicted the company’s global business. Various KORINDO’s business fields will be pushed as much as possible to keep being developed. In logistic field, for example, the company will increase the load volume through additional investments. This year, the company plans to build its second logistics base in Surabaya. Moreover, one of KORINDO’s business units will start to produce hygienic tissue this year and prepare paper manufacturing indsutry in the near future. “Through this innovation, we hope KORINDO Paper Division’s business will shine once more,” said the Senior Vice Chairman.

At the end of the event, Mr. Robert Beomsoo Seung took time to give awards directly to 2 best employees during the period of 2017. The appreciation was given due to the dedication and discipline towards the company in carrying out their tasks as employees in 2017. (read article “Awards for the Best Employees-desk). (ray/cka/ymr)
