LAS VEGAS -- Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, the world's top shipbuilder, revealed its future blueprint for the next 50 years at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and vowed to become the "future builder".
 
"Hyundai Heavy Industries Group, which have grown for the last 50 years to become the world's top shipbuilder, will change into the future builder that would create new values for mankind," the shipbuilding group's CEO Chung Ki-sun told reporters during a press conference at CES on January 6.
 
"We will become the world's No. 1 pioneer for the next 50 years and produce new opportunities for growth."
