This is Hiroyuki Tamura, the president.
We announced our Growing Together 2023 medium-term management plan, which covers the three-year period from April 2020 to March 2023, as the 2nd-stage plan for realizing the Yuasa Vision 360 with a view to the 360th anniversary of our founding in 2026.
With the keywords of "Total Coordination Skills", "A Challenging Sprit", and "Communication", we will form "Tsunagu" Service Integrated Shosha Group" ~through the discovery and fostering of growth businesses (= businesses that solve social issues).
To date, we have created a diverse range of solutions based on the motto of "Growing Together" through a three-pronged combination of the "Yamazumi Association" of our customers, the "Tankyo Association" of our suppliers, and the networks we create.
We will continue to create unique value by adding new functions, such as engineering, logistics, and e-commerce, to the value chain we have built together with our business partners.
In addition, in order to improve productivity through the development of human resources, that source of value creation, and true work style reforms, we are introducing a next-generation management human resource development program and promoting the sharing of information infrastructures on a Group-wide and global basis.
We, the Yuasa Trading Group, will continue to take on challenges for a new era together with our stakeholders in order to realize sustainable development based on our management philosophy of "Honesty and Trust", "A Spirit of Enterprise and Creativity" and "Respect for Human Dignity".
We look forward to your continued support.
