General Manager Kyusuk Han of the Chemicals & Industrial Materials Division Polymer Part was named the recipient of the prestigious Presidential Citation at the 54th annual Trade Day ceremony held in Korea on December 5, 2017.
In Korea, Trade Day is a commemorative day designated by the government to promote the balanced development of trade and to solidify the country’s position as a nation actively engaged in trading. This year, the Korean trading industry gathered to celebrate reaching the USD 1T threshold after a 2-year decline in exports.
As an encouragement to all who have contributed to the growth of the trading industry, individuals and businesses were given awards, among which the Presidential Citation given to General Manager Han is a prestigious award given to 100 individuals only.
General Manager Kyusuk Han was recognized for building on his 25 years of experience in trading chemical products and successfully exporting polymer products in 2017, thereby contributing to the growth of Samsung C&T’s exports.
In particular, Han has exported polymer produced by Korean petrochemical companies to China and Turkey since he began overseeing polymer trade at Samsung C&T in 2014, thus contributing to strengthening the competitiveness and reputation of Korean polymer products. He has also established the foundation for qualitative growth by developing new markets in emerging economies through utilizing the local distribution infrastructure.
