Transparent management key issue for Samsung following Lee's release

삼성, 이사회 중심 투명경영 '가속페달'
With Samsung Electronics vice chair Lee Jae-yong out of jail,... the focus reverts to the Korean tech giant's future,... now that the vacuum within Samsung's leadership has been filled.
Lee Seung-jae reports.
Walking free on Monday,... Samsung Group's heir apparent Lee Jae-yong.
Now that Lee is out, Korea's biggest conglomerate is expected to make some major financial moves,... but not before moving towards a more transparent management system.
Dubbed "New Samsung",... experts believe Lee will push for more transparency in the wake of the bribery scandal,... and accept his past mistakes.
This includes his plans for sweeping structural changes within Samsung.
To resurrect Samsung's tainted image at home,.. the tech giant is likely to expand its corporate social responsibility programs in Korea.
The company's Corporate Social Responsibility unit, which is led by former Samsung communication chief Rhee In-yong,.. will roll out programs in tune with the Moon administration's shared growth policy.
The move is seen as an effort to normalize ties with the new government, which has been pushing to reform Korea's all-powerful chaebol, like Samsung, LG, Hyundai and others.
However, other experts offer a different view of what Lee might have in mind.
They suggest Lee may distance himself from domestic involvement, and rather become more aggressive in global mergers and acquisitions by engaging more with business leaders around the world, and making more large-scale decisions.
And for one,... Lee could make some high-profile public appearances in the coming days,... the most likely being the Opening Ceremony of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Friday-- given that Samsung is a key sponsor and a global Top Olympic Partner of the International Olympic Committee.
Not to mention Lee's ailing father, Lee Kun-hee, played a key role in PyeongChang's successful bid for the Winter Games as a member of the IOC in 2011.
