President and CEO, Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd.

The social and economic environment surrounding the retail industry today is going through a period of meaningful changes, such as the reduction of the working-age population, the rise of electronic commerce (EC), and the increase of inbound tourists to Japan. The transformation of Japanese companies, not only in the retail industry, during this major period of transition is without doubt the very key to improving the productivity of Japan, which has dropped low during the "Lost Two Decades." Aiming to go back to the "aspired image of the retail industry," Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings has initiated reforms in its supply chain in order to deliver contents with high absolute value and in its human resource development and management systems in order for employees to focus their strengths in customer satisfaction. We will endeavor to improve our capabilities to provide the new lifestyles sought by our customers by further honing our abilities in merchandizing, a proven strength of our company.
In this address, I would like to share concrete examples of the reforms we are actually carrying out on the ground.
