Media & Digital
Our business unit deals with media and digital business in the region to further meet consumers’ demands and respond to diversifying lifestyles.
We have entered the telecommunications business in Myanmar and are developing media and IT services-related businesses in Asian countries.
A joint operation with KDDI and Myanmar Posts & Telecommunications (MPT) was launched to expand our telecommunications business, aimed at providing “Japanese quality” mobile, fixed line and internet services throughout Myanmar. We have actively conducted a series of activities, including complete renewal of brand image, opening the directly operated MPT shop and expansion of sales network and telecommunications. We will leverage our years of know-how in the telecommunications industry accumulated in emerging countries to support the economic growth and improvement of living standards in Myanmar.
Under the Media business segment, we have been providing Japanese content for the widely known TV programme “Japan Hour” which is telecast in 28 territories across Asia, Oceania and the Middle East, reaching around 84 million homes and hotel rooms.
Our system integration arms in Singapore, Indonesia and Myanmar operate as subsidiaries of SCSK Corporation. SCSK is headquartered in Japan and a subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation that provides IT infrastructure, system consultation and development functions, and DX solutions.
In 2016, we partnered MonotaRO Co. Ltd, a leading player of online Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) business in Japan and launched MonotaRO Indonesia, a business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce platform specialising in MRO to meet a broad range of pantry and office needs in Indonesia.
On top of that, we have been aggressively investing in multiple digital services companies to strengthen our Media and Digital businesses.
