Update: 2020-03-06     Source: Newsgd.com

South Korea is now confronting the shortage of masks and more as the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases continues to increase in the country. Huangpu and Guangzhou Development District (GDD) donated ten thousand masks and a batch of infrared thermometers to LG Display's headquarters in South Korea on March 4th.

Li Dongyin, General Manager of the LG Display subsidiary in the district, accepted the donation on behalf of the company, and extended thanks to the support and help from Huangpu and GDD.

The LG Group maintains close cooperation with Huangpu and GDD as it has invested in three major projects with a total investment of USD 13 billion in the region since 2006. These projects include a Generation 8.5 OLED panel production plant which is LG's first overseas production line for large-sized OLED screens.

As the three projects have settled, more Korean-funded companies including LG Chem and LDF have also started investing in the region, becoming part of a cluster of high-tech companies, especially in the field of display panel manufacture.

In addition to the donation, Huangpu and GDD have been actively assisting the LG factories get back to work, providing them with masks, supplies and nucleic acid testing kits.

Thus far, 90 percent of the companies in the LG industrial park have resumed work and production is to a large extent back to normal. The company's manager expressed confidence in making up losses and achieving the set target for this year.

According to the Huangpu Government, the LG Display headquarters in South Korea donated a batch of masks to the district on February 4th, easing the shortage during the early stage of the outbreak.

Huangpu and GDD revealed that they have set up a special team to help Korean-funded companies fight the epidemic. The district also donated a batch of masks and more to Hyundai Motor Group's headquarters in China.
