Report on the “Overseas Japanese Nationals Support Forum” sponsored by our corporation

On February 2th of this year, we held a "Support Forum for Japanese Overseas" at Nihonbashi AGORA Cafe. Our articles of incorporation state "international cooperation" in order to inherit Nitobe Inazo's philosophy of "Think Globally, Act Locally." The day was attended by 7 people from industry, academia, government and the private sector who are involved not only in supporting Japanese people overseas, but also in supporting foreigners living in Japan, as well as domestic and international support activities in large-scale emergencies. We would also like to inform you that we received a total of 40 yen in donations in the Noto Peninsula Earthquake Recovery Donation Box set up at the venue, and the money was sent to and accepted by the Red Feather Community Chest. The following is the schedule of the conference.
