It signifies that Kangwon Land should devote itself in ensuring fairness, public interests and openness in decision-making related to such things as businesses and personnel management.The second management tent: creative management calls for making Kangwon Land a sustainable company by eliminating long-standing malpractices and creating new values to brace for the future. It is designed to cope with external and internal management uncertainties, including a special law concerning the development of mining areas in the Jeongseon area, scheduled to expire in 2025, as well as to brace for future environment changes to explore new growth engines by getting rid of malpractices and ill-natured restrictions with a sense of crisis.

It calls for Kangwon Land executives and staff members to do business activities based on freedom and creativity to make Kangwon Land a company that satisfies shareholders and the people, utilizing output in accordance with public interests, thus turning around the regional economy, stabilizing residents’ livelihood, and to develop Kangwon Land into an integrated resort leader that satisfies all stakeholders.
