ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Hyundai Motor as of April 24, 2006. An investigation being conducted by South Korean prosecutors on the firm and a related logistics company owned by chairman Ching Mong-Koo would affect the growth plans of the firm. The ban of CEO Chung Eui-Sun, son of the chairman, to leave Korea during the investigation contributed to the delay of the groundbreaking ceremony of the first U.S. plant of Kia, sister company of Hyundai, in Georgia. The firm intends to establish a plant in the Czech Republic.
