SK Energy's participation in the joint venture symbolizes the company's greater focus and realization of its unique 'China Insider Strategy' – SK Group's strategic growth initiative in China, with an emphasis on the importance of localization and the operation as a truly local player. Such strategy will also further accelerate the Group's global management drive in expanded export and strengthened overseas business.
