Samsung announces multi-billion dollar investment in AI, 5G, and more

Samsung to invest $22 billion into new growth areas like A.I. and 5G

Samsung said it plans to directly employ 40,000 employees over the next three years, hovering above the company's average employment of roughly 25,000 over the past three years.

KAZINFORM Samsung Group, South Korea's biggest family-controlled conglomerate, said Wednesday that it will invest 180 trillion won (160 billion USA dollars) and hire 40,000 more employees for the next three years.

Samsung Electronics said it will invest aggressively in the fifth-generation network technology, which is anticipated to contribute to the growth of self-driving cars, Internet of Things solutions and robotics. Of that total, 130 trillion won will stay in South Korea, the company said.

The announcement Wednesday by South Korea's biggest business group was welcome news, coming at a time of deepening unease over slowing growth in Asia's fourth largest economy. However, it told Reuters that "it will provide most of the investment".

Samsung Electronics is now the world's largest smartphone-maker but also boasts a very strong semiconductor business that supplies chips to the companies such as Apple.

The new strategy will entail an overhaul of Samsung's internal venture incubation program, said the company.

Samsung announced plans to boost investments in businesses expected to drive its future growth. Part of that entails hiring more advanced AI researchers-Samsung wants to have 1,000 of them spread across its global AI centers.

Areas that will be targeted for investment include the company's manufacturing hubs, as well as existing memory and display businesses.

The announcement sent shares in contract drugmaker Samsung BioLogics up more than 5 percent.

Lee was released from jail earlier in 2018 after a year in detention on bribery charges, lifting hopes among some investors that Samsung will hike investments and create jobs.

This still gives it a market share of 20.6 per cent, but even Samsung acknowledged in its results that sales of its newer devices hadn't been as good as excpected.
