> Hyundai > CEO
Welcome, netizens!
Thank you for visiting the Hyundai Group

The aim of the Hyundai Group is to develop the
national economy through successful business
enterprise, and to work for the long-term benefit
and well-being of the 70 million people of North
and South Korea.

In pursuit of this ideal, our founder Chung
Ju-yung, and the former chairman Chung Mong-hun, left their mark on Korean industrial
development on every sector from construction
and heavy industry, to automobiles
to semiconductors.

In 1998, Chung Ju-yung opened the door to the North by driving a herd of cows across
the border in a humanitarian gesture - almost
half a century after the nation was divided.
This simple act of generosity began a new era of reconciliation and co-operation between North
and South, and precipitated the Mt. Kumgang
tourism enterprise and the Gaesung industrial
complex development. Both of these are
expected to have great and growing effects.

Also I am deeply concerned to foster the
involvement and example of the Hyundai Group, and to be where we are needed at this time
in Korean history.

I will strive to open up a promising future with
Hyundai’s characteristic ‘can-do’ approach and

I have confidence and pride in the Hyundai
Group, and it is an honor to head a corporation
so highly regarded by the nation - and indeed
the world.

All netizens are welcome to share in our great
enterprise of development and reconciliation!

Chairwoman, the Hyundai Group
Hyun Jeong-eun
