Since being appointed to the role of LG CEO, William Cho has made changes internally and on the company’s business portfolio. What’s more, the CEO has taken the time to visit LG local offices and production sites in person around the globe. In the first half of the year alone, Mr. Cho already visited a total of 12 countries across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North, Central and South America, traveling a total of 145,000 km – equivalent to three and a half laps around the globe.
At the start of June, CEO Cho visited Saudi Arabia, where he first toured the exhibition hall in Riyadh showcasing the NEOM City Project. There, the CEO was introduced to business opportunities in three projects: ‘The Line,’ a 170km-long eco-friendly vertical city; ‘Oxagon,’ an octagonal high-tech industrial floating complex; and ‘Trojena,’ an iconic mountain resort. Following an in-depth discussion on the NEOM projects, the CEO attended a management meeting to discuss mid- to long-term business strategies in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.
“LG will secure various business opportunities in a wide range of fields such as mobility, air solutions and commercial displays as well as home appliances, TVs and IT for the NEOM City project by leveraging the company’s innovative technology accumulated over the years,” said CEO Cho.
The CEO then toured the company’s air solutions factory in Riyadh, the production base of the company’s premium air conditioners equipped with high-efficiency parts. With excellent cooling performance and high energy efficiency, LG’s air solution products are optimal across the MEA region, where there is a high demand for air conditioners due to the year-round hot climate.
“Our presence in Saudi Arabia is of utmost importance, even on a global scale. Our local factory aligns with the Saudi Vision 2030 and plays a core role in producing green energy level products while forming the central production base for the region, exporting to up to 16 countries in the middle east and Asia,” said Mr. Cho. “LG will keep taking initiatives to achieve sustainable growth as well as further strengthen the company’s position as a market leader.”
The CEO’s next destination was India, the world’s most populace nation and a market of growing importance for LG, where the CEO addressed local staff about the company’s future direction.
LG’s Indian subsidiary, celebrating its 26th anniversary this year, has achieved a dominant position in the Indian market by strengthening its infrastructure – establishing a locally-complete business that encompasses sales and production subsidiaries and R&D centers.
In India, Mr. Cho visited LG brand stores, R&D centers and home appliance and TV production lines, witnessing local operations in action and learning about the strategies the subsidiary is employing to boost business competitiveness and secure future growth engines.
CEO Cho’s first stop was the New Delhi sales subsidiary, where he spoke with key staff members about new business opportunities, such as electric vehicle charging solutions and EduTech utilizing digital whiteboard and IT solutions.
“In India, which boasts a large market and considerable growth potential, the company will build on its No. 1 market share and strategically develop future businesses,” said Mr. Cho.
Speaking with local personnel, CEO Cho also stressed the importance of the brand’s growth in online commerce. LG is targeting increased online sales in India through implementing a differentiated digital strategy founded on a deep understanding of, and empathy for, Indian culture. Earlier this year, responding to the soaring popularity of online shopping in India, the company established an online brand shop (OBS) and launched a direct-to-consumer (D2C) business.
CEO Cho’s Indian itinerary also included the cities of Noida and Pune, where he examined the company’s home appliance and TV product lines and looked into the current status of converting it into an eco-friendly smart factory. LG has pledged to convert 100 percent of the energy used by all production bases around the world into renewable energy by 2025. The company will also increase investment in these two plants this year to expand their capacity to produce premium home appliances. LG washing machines, air conditioners, TVs and monitors produced in these plants are sold not only locally but exported to countries in the MEA region.

I have the LG WP401 webOS Box model, to configure it, the previous administrator gave it a password and it did not leave it for me.
How can I give it a factory reset or change the current password to be able to enter via the Web, to use the content manager and control manager
Thanks for the help
A few months ago after a firmware update, the one that says "SLING + FreeStream" across the screen on starting sling, each time the tv comes on, and sling was the last item open, it says network error, and if I exit sling loads fine.
It only does this with Sling and my LG tv's. Netflix doesn't do it and my Samsung and Visio don't do it. None of my LG's did until that update. It's like they're trying to go to a site before the TV's network is ready, and no retrying it.
If I go to Netflix then turn off the TV, when I turn it back on Netflix loads just fine with no Error.
I'm resetting these again. I tried that multiple times and it doesn't fix anything. Deleting the Sling app and reloading and updating doesn't help either. This all happens on all 3 of my new LG's.
Is there a Twitter App for LG webOS? I can't find it in the LG Content Store on my LG smart OLED TV. I can open Twitter in the browser app, and once it raised a prompt "It's better in the App" but that has not returned.
Web searches on the topic come up empty. Either the app is there so nobody asks about it, OR people are really incurious!
I have just bought an LG TV (model LG 43UQ7500). I have tuned it via antenna, but the TV has a problem playing everything (it says "invalid service") except for 7 channels, which are public broadcast (but that shouldn't make difference - they are all DTV). The only thing that does help is turning off the TV, waiting for a few minutes and then turning it back on. Once I turn it off and then on, it stops working - except for the 7 channels. So it's a neverending process of turning it off and on to actually be able to watch the TV.
Does anybody know what could be causing this? The TV has been updated, I have set it up for my location (Czech Republic), I've tried factory reset....
Thank you for your suggestions!
