Jeong Man-ki, chairman of the H2 Mobility+Energy Show organizing committee (Chairman of KAMA), expressed confidence in his opening remarks, saying, “Many companies and buyers have participated in this year’s show, and we have already been guaranteed with success.” Especially, as the success factors of Korean hydrogen companies, he cited the fact that hydrogen is the most reliable means of a carbon-neutral economy and that the entire hydrogen value-added chain is rapidly developing, along with the technology-oriented strategy for the H2 Mobility+Energy Show.
Chairman Jeong continued, “Considering that Korea’s economic structure has limited means to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and carbon reduction by more than 35% compared to the existing target by 2030, the private sector should make the effort to create a hydrogen industry ecosystem and technology that is a sure way to achieve carbon neutrality. The government should not spare support to these companies in every way to provide tax reduction, financial grant, and technology and HR resources.”
