In my experience, it's typical of a ceo or director to say stuff like that to make you work harder.
They may very well appreciate your work, but often, they see that they can "unlock some potential" by giving a little pep talk while sounding concerned.

It's not that you shouldn't believe them, but they probably still like the effort you put into your work,
and won't fire you if they express gratitude in the workplace.

Another aspect is that a ceo in a large coorperation can be about as insightful to an individual employee as a real-life santa claus to a single kid. -Does he really know how hard you work, or did he miss it because he's had too many meetings before you talk to him?

Just keep doing your very best. Push it further if you will, but no-one should expect more from you than that.
Then it's abuse of "cheap"(?) labor. I've had a couple of family members working abroad, and they were all, sadly, mistreated because their employer knew that the alternative was a much lower pay, even poor living conditions and problems feeding the children.
Not uncommon, but I hope you've found a humane employer, and I hope you realize what they're worth to you as well as the other way around.

-Best of luck.
