Samsung Electronics has been ranked… by
far… South Korea’s most valuable brand. UK-based research agency Brand Finance evaluated
50 local companies, and Samsung Electronics easily topped the list with a brand value
of 68 billion U.S. dollars. Although that’s six-point-three percent lower
than last year…., it’s a value EIGHT TIMES higher than its closest Korean rival, Hyundai
Motor. South Korean chipmaker SK Hynix saw the biggest
surge in brand value, jumping 62 percent in a year… to seven-point-nine billion dollars. It was fourth on the list, up two notches
from last year.
