PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Sean Roh President of KACCOC

Greetings!

This is Sean Roh, the 43rd President of Korean American Chamber of Commerce of Orange Country (KACCOC).

Since the foundation of the Chamber in 1978, we have been striving to create a conducive business environment with all partners and leaders in Orange Country.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the world economy has been impacted severely with negative growth rate by expanding damages to small and medium-sized businesses.
In the midst of the pandemic, a rapid shift in paradigm occurred in our economy and society from face-to-face to contact-free. The rule of economy is in transit to the Fourth Industrial Revolution with the transition to contact-free services leading its way. The process of revolution is accelerated and immersed to overcome the crisis.

In the time of confusion, the KACCOC will advance and pursue following business missions in order to regain future confidence and reduce difficulties in 2021.

First, the department of steering committee focused educational seminar and up-to-date industry information will support struggling small-medium-sized businesses to transit to the Fourth Industrial Revolution with new opportunities and independency.

Second, we will aim to establish business support programs with a liaison from all aspects of the government branches.

Third, we will undertake a crucial role in communicating to the governments for effective and improved business environment including economy policy-making, relaxation of regulation and fulfillment agreements.

Fourth, we will serve by strengthening practical uses of non-contact virtual-trends to lift consolidation of competitiveness reinforcement.

Fifth, we will enlarge our networks by extending to economic associations in other regions and countries.

Sixth, we will promote innovation movements of next generation start-ups.

Recent considerable progress on COVID-19 vaccine and medicine developments gave us a hope for the future for the first time since the Pandemic started. Despite of the crisis never experienced before, KACCOC will be in the front line of the economy thoroughly for the prosperity of Orange County businesses.

한국어 인사말

안녕하십니까.
오렌지카운티 한인 상공 회의소 43대 회장 노상일입니다.

KACCOC는 1978년 창립 이래, 한인 상공인 회원을 중심으로 정부, 지역사회의 파트너 및 지도자들과 협력해 OC 한인 상공업 진흥을 위해 매진해 왔습니다.

2020년은 예기치 못한 코로나 19 대유행의 시작으로 세계경제 성장률 전망치가 마이너스로 하향 조정되는 등 중소기업과 소상공인에게까지 경제적 피해가 확대되는 혼란의 시기였습니다.
이런 가운데 우리 사회와 경제는 사회적 거리두기로 인해 ‘대면에서 비대면의 시대’ 로의 패러다임 전환이 급격히 이뤄지고 있습니다. 비대면서비스로의 전환이4차 산업혁명의 대전환으로 이어지는 징검다리 역할을 하며 디지털 시대로 경제의 룰이 바뀌고 있는 것입니다.
위기를 극복하기 위해 더 깊고 빠른 혁신이 일어나고 있습니다.

이에 KACCOC는 지금의 코로나 19, ‘혼돈의 가장자리’시대에 한인 상공인의 피해를 줄이고 미래에 대한 자신감을 회복할 수 있도록 2021년 다음과 같은 사업목표로 진화해 가겠습니다.

첫번째, 분과 운영위원회 중심의 교육 세미나 및 최신 업계정보 제공으로 어려움을 겪는 자영업자, 중소기업이 4차 산업혁명 부문 등으로 옮겨가는 자립을 돕습니다.
두번째, 정부(시, 카운티, 주, 연방) 상공인 지원프로그램 발굴해 연계합니다.
세번째, 효과적인 비지니스 환경을 위한 경제정책입안, 규제 제거, 이행하는 정부와의 소통의 역활을 노력할 것입니다.
네번째, 비대면으로 인한 온라인 트렌드를 경쟁력 강화 수단으로 활용할 수 있도록 돕겠습니다.
다섯째, 타 지역, 타국의 경제단체와 네트워크 확장을 합니다.
여섯째, 차세대 스타트업 기업들의 혁신을 지원합니다.

최근 코로나 19백신과 치료제 개발이 진전을 이루면서 팬더믹이 시작된 이래 처음으로 보다 밝은 미래에 대한 희망이 생겼습니다. 2021년, 이제껏 겪어보지 못한 위기에도 OC상공인들의 비즈니스 번영을 위해 KACCOC는 경제의 최전선, 우리가 있어야할 그 자리에 굳건히 있겠습니다.

감사합니다.
