for global PPP project development.

Since the world is facing drastic climate changes and rapid urbanization today,
the need for infrastructure investment is emerging greater than ever with the
gap between infrastructure demand and supply hardly to be filled in the near
future. The highest priority, therefore, has been attached to infrastructure
investment not only in Korea but also in other numerous countries on this globe.

KIND is now ready to serve as a facilitator for efficient Public-Private Partnership

(“PPP”) projects worldwide, collaborating with various global PPP players to
help fill such gap.

As required in each of our partner countries, KIND will devise and customize
its way of support so that Korea’s rich experiences and technical expertise of
private and public sectors could be fully channeled into the entire process of
PPP project development including project identification, project structuring,
construction, O&M, and finance. This KIND way of support will also ensure
economically, environmentally and socially viable development, thereby creating
a virtuous circle of sustainable growth of partner countries.

In this ever-growing global infrastructure market, KIND will exert the utmost
endeavor to integrate and maximize our capacities together with our potential
partners. As a team, we will be able to promote more successful PPP projects
in the days to come.

We look forward to partnering with you.
