He was speaking at the South Korean tech giant's annual general meeting where shareholders are expected to vote on the appointment of board directors.

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd expects a tough year for its component business including memory chips due to sluggish growth in the smartphone market and reduced investment from data centre companies, Chief Executive Kim Ki-nam said on Wednesday.

He was speaking at the South Korean tech giant's annual general meeting where shareholders are expected to vote on the appointment of board directors.

Samsung is seeking new growth in areas such as network equipment manufacturing as sales of its mainstay chips and smartphones begin to drop.

The company would continue to make bold investments in semiconductor manufacturing in the face of stiffening Chinese competition, Kim said.
