SEOUL, Dec. 10 (Yonhap) -- Samsung Electronics Co.'s new Vice Chairman and CEO Han Jong-hee will deliver a keynote speech at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next month, the company said Friday, presenting the direction of technological development going forward.

Han's speech, under the title of "Together for Tomorrow," will revolve around the idea that technology should exist for humanity and the planet, the company said.

Han is expected to talk about the tech company's efforts to keep the earth more sustainable and tackle climate change by introducing innovative, life-changing technologies to achieve those goals.

He will also present how connectivity can enrich people's lives.

Han had served as president and head of the visual display business at Samsung Electronics since 2017. An expert in TV research and development, Han played a key role in bringing the company's TV business to the global top position.

The South Korean company has shared its business philosophy and vision six times through keynote speeches at CES since 2002, with subjects ranging from human digitalism to mobility to Internet of Things.

Other keynote speakers include GM CEO Mary Barra and T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert.
