Greetings from CEO

Naoki Inoue

In order to think of development of manufacturing enterprises in Asia by medium and long term viewpoint
 

2015 passed so fast, because we started business in Vietnam and had business investigations in India etc., besides service expansion in existing bases in China/Thailand/Japan.

 

If look at surrounding environment, the difficulties of business continuity and risks of life overseas raised. Necessary management function and management etc. need time and cost to maintain talent resource to run corporation in several countries. It is very important to think of meaning of business promotion in individual country, how to strengthen cooperative relation with external person that can be trusted and enterprises and support organizations with same purpose. And, for enterprises who don’t own distribution channel yet, maybe it is also a successful shortcut to consider expansion business together with enterprises that have actual performance.

As FNA group, we plan to provide service by following viewpoints to think how to expand business overseas by long term viewpoint.

It is important to continue to exchange information with business, besides new business matching locally. Recently new business expansion in China/Thailand also is stable. We hear the voice from everyone of manufacturing industry in various places that everyone hope a platform to exchange information to continue to expand local operation besides new clients. In addition to routine“Manufacturing business meeting”in FNA China corporation and receive a favorable reputations for small scale exchange meeting and plant tour. Our staff can have various conversations through the opportunity with clients face to face and utilize knowledge and experience learnt in new service expansion in the future.

And, not only exchange business overseas from now on, but also should study and share method to strengthen support from headquarter in Japan and not only exchange information with base overseas, also should interact with overseas bases with headquarters. From this viewpoint, FNA held “Asia market development research organization for manufacturing industry” 2 times with 100 participants in Japan last year. Firstly, we invite professionals from financial institution and government and study how to support it and information to exchange information with supporters. We want to promote interaction with headquarters through the study.


FNA will promote detailed measures as following for 2020.


① Strength network exceeding Japanese enterprises overseas(China +Thailand +Vietnam)
