Looking ahead to “the future”, taking on new challenges. Ever since 1918, Panasonic has been continuously building on its innovation guarantee by embracing the technologies of the future and applying them to meet today’s needs. By always placing people at the center of our activities, focusing on their daily lives, we continue to provide a better life for our customers. This is Panasonic’s continued commitment for many years. We are now aiming for an ubiquitous expansion of our contribution to a better life. This means that in the variety of spaces where our customers enjoy their lives – in the home, office, store, car, plane or city, we will provide not only individual hardware components but also complete solutions including software and services. We will follow the concept of Better Life, Better World, responding to the needs of each individual customer. To that end, we will use the strengths we have developed in Panasonic in consumer electronics business, along with the strengths of our business partners with extensive experience in many areas, and we will work to unite these strengths by pursuing “Innovation with cross values. ” This creates new value. This is the new and difficult task we are facing.
