Creating new competitive advantages through open innovation

With a new industrial revolution rushing toward us, my ambition is to take advantage of this movement so as to revitalize the competitiveness of Japanese industries. We can no longer wait for the transformation of the industry. We must press forward with a business overhaul of the industry as a whole, by carving out non-core businesses, by consolidating and integrating, and by making effective use of overseas M&As. Meanwhile, I mean to develop those business succeeding on the world stage by actively supporting start-up companies with new technology and business models. In the time remaining for the INCJ, we aim to further strengthen our support for the portfolio companies and contribute to bolstering the industrial competitiveness of Japanese industry through open innovation.
