Taipei, Oct. 22 (CNA) The president of China Steel Corp. (CSC, 中鋼) has been appointed to serve as the
new board chairman of the company, the Executive Yuan confirmed Saturday.
Cabinet spokesman Hsu Kuo-yung (徐國勇), said that Wong Chao-tung (翁朝棟) will formally assume his new post very soon. Former CSC Chairman Andrew Sung (宋志育) retired at the end of September.
Wong, 62, started his way up from the grassroots of the company, and was assigned to supervise the building of a cold rolled steel plate plant in Vietnam six years ago.
He returned to Taiwan in January this year to serve as CSC subsidiary China Ecotek Corp. (中宇環保) chairman.
When he assumed the post of CSC president in June, he said he will work with the government’s “New Southbound Policy,” which ties in with the company’s project to tap the Association of Southeast Asian industry. [FULL STORY]
