Chairman Lee was invited to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg's home in Palo Alto for a one-on-one meeting

Samsung Electronics announced on the 13th that Chairman Lee Jae-yong had wrapped up his two-week business trip to the United States, a trip of significant importance. During this trip, he had the privilege of meeting with the CEOs of major IT, AI, and semiconductor companies such as Meta, Amazon, and Qualcomm on both the East and West Coasts, a testament to the high regard in which Samsung is held in the industry.

During this trip, Chairman Lee assessed Samsung's global standing and future technological competitiveness in the era of 'hyper-competition' and laid the groundwork for a promising future. He focused on expanding cooperation with existing customers in various Samsung divisions, including smartphones, TVs, home appliances, networks, memory, and foundries. Moreover, he spearheaded the creation of new cooperation models in advanced fields like AI, setting the stage for Samsung's future competitiveness.

On June 11, Chairman Lee was invited to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg's home in Palo Alto for a one-on-one meeting, a testament to their strong personal connection. They discussed cooperation in future ICT industries and software fields, including AI, virtual, and augmented reality. Lee and Zuckerberg, who have built a close friendship since their first meeting in 2011 and have met eight times, are expected to expand Samsung and Meta's cooperation in AI further.

On June 12, Chairman Lee visited Amazon's headquarters in Seattle to meet with CEO Andy Jassy. Accompanied by Samsung executives, including DS Division Head Jeon Young-hyun, Memory Business Unit Head Lee Jung-bae, DSA Vice President Han Jin-man, and North America General Manager Choi Kyung-sik, they discussed additional cooperation in key business areas such as generative AI and cloud computing. Amazon, heavily investing in AI and cloud services, collaborates with Samsung in various fields beyond semiconductors, including TV, mobile, and content.

On June 10, Chairman Lee met with Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon in San Jose to discuss expanding cooperation in the emerging future semiconductor market, including AI semiconductors and next-generation communication chips. Samsung and Qualcomm have a long-standing cooperative relationship, recently expanding their collaboration to AI, PC, and mobile platforms.

During his trip, Chairman Lee also met with global fabless semiconductor companies to discuss expanding foundry business cooperation and innovations in manufacturing technology for future semiconductor development.

As he concluded his U.S. trip, Chairman Lee stated, "Let's leverage Samsung's strengths and pioneer the future in a Samsung way." 

Samsung Electronics plans to develop comprehensive cooperation efforts with big tech companies into specific visions and business plans during a global strategy meeting later this month. This meeting will serve as a springboard for overcoming challenges and achieving new growth.
