Message from General Manager for East Asia

We will propose and realize businesses based on an accurate understanding of the social and economic changes in East Asia so as to help solve problems faced by society and bring strong growth to the Sumitomo Corporation Group.

To this end, we are working to expand our business foundation by leveraging the Group’s global network and information acquired from business activities in the region and intensifying cross-organizational collaboration among business units and with other regions.

We achieve unique composite businesses in collaboration with strategic partners in the fields of mobility, urban transportation and development, healthcare and elderly care, and environmental protection. Furthermore, ICT is developing and finding new practical applications with tremendous speed in this region, which is another noteworthy point we intend to capitalize on by adopting ICT technology and know-how to create new business models.
