      For many Koreans, Ethiopia is more than just a developing country in East Africa known for its famous coffee. The history between the two countries runs deep and since 2013 LG has designated the African nation a key priority for the company’s community-building activities including the construction of new housing for Korean War Veteran decedents to teaching new job skills.

      Under its overarching vision to nurture local communities, LG has collaborated with KOICA (Korean International Cooperation Agency) to establish a tuition-free training program to teach competitive job skills to the next generation of Ethiopians. LG-KOICA Hope TVET College, founded in 2014, has recruited students who are decedents of Korean War veterans, from low income family and or the physically challenged.

      Approximately 30 students are selected every year through an admission process that tests their their knowledge of physics, mathematics and English. Once accepted into the no tuition three-year program, the students are also provided with free meals and transportation. In addition to the regular training courses, experts from LG’s Regional Training Center in Dubai make annual visits to provide on-site training as well.

      As part of the program, six exceptional students and the two best trainers from each department travel to LG’s regional headquarters in Dubai every year for additional training. For seven days the group is trained in customer service and receive additional job skills. LG’s regional office makes available internship opportunities and has hired LG-KOICA TVET College graduates who have demonstrated strong technical skills, knowledge and attitude.

      The program has proven to be a success. Over the past five years, 91 percent of LG-KOICA Hope TVET College students have passed the Ethiopian government’s Certificate of Competency exam compared to the national passing average of 47 percent. Since 2014, the government has recognized the college as the best performing school in the country, an accolade which has helped students land even better jobs upon graduation.

      Even after graduation, the college continues to provide support and guidance to its students, arranging job fairs and project exhibitions with companies in Ethiopia. As a result, 100 percent of the 324 graduates succeeded in finding jobs: 77 percent at companies and 23 percent self employed.

      To encourage creative thinking and entrepreneurship as part of the training, LG and KOICA established the Incubation Center in 2018 as a place where students can turn their innovative ideas and prototype products into a business strategy. A steam bread maker, modernized three-wheel tuktuk and TV module for training are just some of the ideas that got their start at the Incubation Center.

      In addition to job skill training, LG-KOICA Hope TVET College provides opportunities to participate in sports. The school is home to the continent’s first women’s baseball team, an inspiration to all girls in Africa who know no limits.

      LG-KOICA Hope TVET College is an example of a responsible company making a difference through its adherence to LG’s philosophy of effecting Sustainable Changes in Society. Through its multi-faceted partnership with KOICA and the Ethiopian government, LG is sharing its values not only with the youth of Ethiopia but with everyone who is committed to making the world a better place.

      Highest Full-Year and Fourth-Quarter Revenues in LG Electronics’
      History Driven by Strong Demand in Premium Home Appliances and TVs

      SEOUL, Jan. 27, 2022 — LG Electronics Inc. (LG) continued its strong performance in 2021, achieving the highest annual revenues in its history with full-year sales of KRW 74.72 trillion (USD 63.16 billion). This increase of 28.7 percent over 2020 was attributed primarily to stronger sales of premium home appliances and OLED TVs. Operating profit of KRW 3.86 trillion (USD 3.27 billion) was essentially unchanged, declining 1 percent from the previous year.
      LG also reported record sales in the fourth quarter with revenues of KRW 21.01 trillion (USD 17.76 billion), an increase of 20.7 percent from the same quarter the previous year. Operating profit of KRW 677.7 billion (USD 572.87 million) in the quarter declined 21.4 percent from the same quarter a year earlier due in large part to factors such as higher raw material and global logistics costs. As challenging business conditions persist into 2022, LG is staying the course to strengthen competitiveness by further improving its cost structure and continuing to expand the presence of its premium appliances and TVs in the global market.
      The LG Home Appliance & Air Solution Company saw another record-setting year with 2021 revenues of KRW 27.11 trillion (USD 22.92 billion), an increase of 21.7 percent from the previous year, driven largely by strong performance in new appliance categories such as hygiene products. Annual operating profit of KRW 2.22 trillion (USD 1.88 billion) was 2.9 percent lower than in the previous year due to higher costs for raw materials and global logistics. Record fourth-quarter revenues of KRW 6.52 trillion (USD 5.52 billion) were 17.7 percent higher than the same period 2020.
      The LG Home Entertainment Company reported 2021 revenue growth of 30.6 percent to KRW 17.22 trillion (USD 14.56 billion) with operating profit increasing 18.1 percent over the previous year to KRW 1.1 trillion (USD 929.68 million), reflecting LG’s success in responding to the higher demand for premium TVs during the pandemic. Revenues in the quarter of KRW 4.99 trillion (USD 4.21 billion) were 16.4 percent higher than fourth quarter the prior year and up 19.2 percent from the previous quarter owing to the growth in demand for premium OLED and large-screen TVs in key regions of Europe and North America.
      The LG Vehicle component Solutions Company increased revenues by 24 percent in 2021 from 2020 to KRW 7.19 trillion (USD 6.08 billion), exceeding KRW 7 trillion for the first time. Revenues in the fourth quarter of KRW 1.68 trillion (USD 1.42 billion) declined 12.3 percent from the same quarter the previous year. Under the cloud of uncertainty created by the new COVID-19 variant, the global automotive market experienced significant disruption due to the shortage of automotive semiconductors.
      The LG Business Solutions Company achieved 2021 revenues of KRW 6.96 trillion (USD 5.89 billion), a 15.8 percent increase over the previous year while higher material costs and supply chain challenges resulted in an annual operating profit of KRW 144.3 billion (USD 121.98 million). Fourth-quarter revenues increased 14 percent from the same period in 2020 to KRW 1.72 trillion (USD 1.46 billion) on the back of strong demand for premium PCs and gaming monitors. An increase in cost of global logistics and slowdown of solar module sales due to increased competition contributed to a fourth-quarter operating loss of KRW 35.1 trillion (USD 29.67 billion).
