The world is currently approaching a critical "turning point" in which many changes are taking place. Changes in the U.S. - China centered global dynamic as the United States looks inward with their “America First Policy” and China looks outward with their own brand of globalism; changes in the capital procurement climate due to the normalization of ultra-monetary easing; and changes in the industrial structure and the competitive environment as a result of the further expansion of the digital transformation.
As we recognize that we are faced with this substantial turning point in the world, we have updated and are promoting the "Ideal Marubeni Group” and the Mid-Term Management Plan (2016-2018), “Global Challenge 2018”, with an eye toward 2020.
The Marubeni Group is committed to contributing to social and economic development as well as to the betterment of people’s daily lives by helping resolve social issues through business activities as a responsible member of the global community. We believe that it is our mission to provide higher value in this way. We will continue to relish great challenges and work to outperform the top players in business fields and markets across the world, aiming to become a true global company that contributes to both regional economies and society.
President and CEO, Member of the Board
