‘As the world rapidly becomes digitalized, corporations see technology, not as just a tool which merely speeds up their works. The companies, which make an effort to transform innovation and technology into corporate DNAs to gain competitive advantages on digital platforms, are trying to meet customer demands regarding new experiences. Spreading this vision of innovation and technology is crucial for us to maintain sustainable growth under tough global economic circumstances.
To help this vision embraced by companies, our Samsung Innovation Center serves our customers and business partners in Turkey. We’re happy that we’re now able to deliver the results of our R&D investments, which are over $14 billion annually, firsthand to the companies in our country.’
