Samsung C&T is a global trading company that engages in
commodities trading and project organizing mostly in the fields of
chemicals, steel, energy and materials.

Samsung C&T was established in 1938 as Samsung Trading Company,
which later became the originating company of Samsung Group.
Upholding founder Lee Byung-chul’s philosophy of “Business Patriotism,”
Samsung C&T launched its overseas trading business in the 1950s,
and was designated as Korea’s first general trading company in 1975.
For over eight decades, Samsung C&T has spearheaded the growth of
the Korean economy through its global operations, witnessing the ups
and downs of the nation’s tumultuous period of modernization.

Samsung C&T Trading and Investment Group has some 80 offices
in 45 countries around the world. Leveraging this global network
and expertise accumulated over many years, T&I Group continues to
make tireless efforts to provide optimal solutions to its customers.

We are also fulfilling our duties as a responsible corporate citizen by
engaging in activities to care for needy residents in local communities,
provide history education programs to children from multicultural
families, and upgrading the educational environment in low-income
countries, among others.

We at Samsung C&T will continue to take on our role as a global
value-creating company that contributes to the lasting success of
our customers.

Expressing our appreciation for supporting us over the past 80 years,
we ask for your continued interest in Samsung C&T in its journey of
becoming a global value creator.

Thank you.
