KT Chairman Hwang Chang-kyu urged all members of KT Group to make efforts to provide the highest level of 5G services to the public.

Hwang made the remarks during a "2019 Group Executives Workshop" at the Bundang Grand Auditorium in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province, on April 26. The event was attended by Hwang, executives from KT and 38 groups, as well as some 430 senior managers.

In order to prevent a recurrence of Ahyeon Fire, He explained, "We will establish a safety control center that oversees communication-related safety maintenance, facility management and fire prevention."
