The Korean greatest financial combine, the Samsung group must be perplexed. Cards U.S. President shows gratitude in the news that core company of the group, Samsung Electronics may build the new factory in the United States at Twitter, and this is because it treated it as if it is confirmed report. 李在鎔 (イジェヨン) Samsung Electronics's vice-chairperson of the management top is arrested, and headquarters can decide the construction of the new factory in the absent situation immediately, and the Samsung group does not seem. It seems to have possibilities to be said that such a management blank of Gulliver company representing Korea is a situation to symbolize a crisis of the Korea economy while Japan, the United States and Europe including Toyota Motor Corporation and a Chinese major company show "allegiance" posture in succession whereas Mr. cards presses the company for expansion of investment and the employment in the United State
"Thank you, Samsung!" . Mr. cards received the news about the factory construction of Samsung in the United States on February 2 and wrote in it at Twitter in this way. The net media based in the United States conveyed the news on the same day. It is said that Samsung examines the factory construction of "the white goods" such as a washing machine or the vacuum cleaner in the form that quoted "Reuter" from Seoul.
Samsung announced the comment, "I continue examining the need of new investment in the United States", but does not destroy the carefulness posture by the positioning with the talking stage to the last.
The real intention of Mr. cards which handle a factory new establishment of non-publication as if it is an established fact is not clear, but it must be it for Samsung that it is with constant pressure.
However, it will be the fact that the center of the management of Samsung is more than the new establishment of the factory in the situation of the malfunction by an arrest of the top.
It is 17th approximately two weeks after Twitter of Mr. cards that Mr. plum was arrested by a Korean independent counsel (特検). It is the charges such as the bribery for the 崔順実 (チェスンシル) defendant of the woman of a business in the friends of the 朴槿恵 (パククネ) President. By the company merger in the Samsung group, it is suspected that I gave 崔被告側 a bribe in hope of the grant of accommodation such as support or the kind treatment of 朴政権.
"All became uncertain in this". As for all the cases needing the decision of the owner, interruption is not avoided. The alliance news conveyed such a sadness of the person concerned with Samsung. Samsung is poised to survive a critical situation in collective guidance system, but it is inevitable that the important investment decision such as mergers and acquisitions (M&A) for the competitiveness reinforcement is delayed by absence of the top who raised centripetal force as the third generation of the person of establishment of a business that dominated the group.
President Masayoshi Son of the SOFTBANK group talks together with Mr. cards before the U.S. President assumption of office in last December and promises investment more than 5 trillion yen in the United States and the job creation of 50,000 people. I announced that President Akio Toyota of Toyota Motor Corporation invested 10 billion dollars (1,120 billion yen) in the United States in the next five years in this January.
I announce that U.S. auto giant General Motors (GM) carries out an additional investment of 1 billion dollars in the United States. I proposed a policy that the European auto giant Fiat Chrysler automatic Mobil's (FCA) reinforced the plant of the factory in the United States and employed 2,000 people more.

Samsung will be the place where top oneself wants to express investment decision in the United States to parry Mr. cards which I dangle the opposition measures such as tariff increases, and repeat criticism for a company selling the product which I produced in an American outside factory including Mexico in the United States. But it is the form that the present conditions start late adversely, and does a feeling clearly.
A difficult situation always includes Samsung. It was driven into the stop to manufacture and sell of smartphone "galaxy notebook 7" that a defect became clear, and consumers' confidence lost it last year.
The corporate image in the United States shows a lot of aggravation, too. Samsung greatly cut down on order in the 49th place from the seventh place of the last year when American pollster "Harris Poll" investigated a company reputation index (Reputation Quotien) in the United States of 2017 according to Joong-ang Daily News.
Influence begins to appear for sale. It was with 77,500,000, and Samsung fell off the first place a year earlier into the second place with the smartphone world shipment number according to the maker of the fourth-quarter for 16 years when U.S. research company strategy hole re-Thich settled it. The first place was 78,300,000 in U.S. Apple Inc.
It is avoided by this top arrest that recovery of damaged brand image fades away still more, and Samsung does not seem. As well as it, I receive the sanctions based on the law of each country including the American overseas corrupt practice act that forbade the bribery in foreign countries, and even the concern that business is limited surfaces.
The existence of Samsung in Korea is great and occupies gross domestic product (GDP) and approximately 20% of export. It was naive, and it faced "crisis (the Korean media) that was biggest in company 79 years" since the establishment that the top was arrested.
"Increase of the uncertainty by the management blank of Samsung and the fall of the international confidence degree will act as a big burden to Korea economy of the severe present time not it" (Korean manager total association). Han-Kyoreh reports a voice of such an anxiety of the Korean business group.
The economy of Korea suffers dullness by a blast of the economic slowdown of China. Besides, Korean 韓進海運 which it is marine transportation giant, and was the seventh place of the world receives adjudication of bankruptcy from the court on 17th, and the Lotte group which woke up a house disturbance is a criminal case, and chairperson and others are indicted without arrest, and a major company is the situation shaking in sequence.
It is certain to give Korea depending on the global market a blow, and the second coming of the economic crisis such as the currency crisis in 1997 has the rise of global protectionism by the birth of the cards government pointed out in the country. Business stagnation of Samsung by the top arrest has a big fear to accelerate stalemate of such an economy of Korea. (economic headquarters Makoto Honda)
