Growth Strategy for Creating Value

The following growth strategies are designed to generate value through business and elevate Sojitz’s overall corporate value. The foundation for these strategies will be understanding market needs and social issues based on megatrends, and leveraging our unique strengths. In particular, from the perspective of medium- to long-term sustainability, we are closely focusing on and discussing market needs and social issues, and are reflecting these needs and issues in our policies and implementing them in our businesses.
