“This year marks the 122nd anniversary of Woori Bank,” said CEO Kwon Kwang-seok of Woori Bank in his message to the clientele in Korea and around the world.
Then he said, “Boosting the economy by facilitating financial support and contributing to the national economy is our motto."
In 1899, Woori Bank pioneered new hope and future with the power of national capital in this land, which was a barren land of finance.” Here are his further remarks:
At a time when everyone is in trouble due to the current global economic recessional, Woori Bank once again recalls its founding ideology of "Boosting the Economy by Facilitating Financial Support and Contributing to the National Economy."
In the future, Woori Bank will not only play its role in finance in the midst of a crisis, but also present a new vision of Korea's finance through constant change and innovation.
Above all, we will strengthen our digital competitiveness to provide the best financial services to our customers and lead the financial market through bold digital innovation.
I ask for your continued interest and support for Woori Bank, and I hope that all peoples around the world, as well as in Korea, will be filled with the best of health and happiness.
