“We are very proud to be part of this national event,” Hyundai Motor’s Kwang Shik Park said during the handover ceremony today. “We will do our best to ensure the smooth operation of our vehicles during the event, to make the 2014 ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit the most successful summit ever.”
As part of the vehicle support, the Group plans to operate a special team that will constantly monitor and inspect the cars and respond immediately to any emergency situations.
The Hyundai Motor Group has a record of successfully sponsoring many international events at global locations, including the 2010 G-20 Summit and 2012 Nuclear Security Summit in Seoul.
