It was a good opportunity to increase awareness in the Philippines regarding our business activities in Mindanao.

We have consistently continued to create business opportunities for Japanese companies to get involved and collaborate with them to the fullest extent possible and practiced as a liaison to create opportunities to bring in people, goods and investments from Japan. Our business activities have been focused on Mindanao/Caraga region so far, but we would like to further expand the business area in the future based on our past achievements.

In addition, we will continue to contribute strongly to the economic development of Mindanao, especially in the areas around Butuan City by taking the role of liaison between Japan and other Japanese companies in order to deliver the business opportunities as much as possible of participation to the projects in foreign countries with the various Japanese governmental agencies, local governments and private companies.
