Overseas Regional Organizations
The overseas regional organizations have been consolidated into four broad regions—East Asia; Asia & Oceania; Europe, Middle East, Africa & CIS; and the Americas—in order to further strengthen the functions of each regional business, such as the ability to initiate new businesses and secure and develop human resources. This reorganization also makes it possible for us to solidify the foundation of each regional organization and efficiently allocate our corporate resources into growing markets around the world.
These broad regional organizations work in close collaboration and share common product and regional strategies with business units of the Tokyo Head Office, leading the creation of business overseas by fully utilizing our strengths and functions so as to enhance our earning power on a global basis.
