1. Purpose of Establishing Hitachi Kokusai Asia

In the mature domestic market, to achieve the objectives of "HK-AV10" for our company and to expand our business, global deployment is the top priority. Our company has made efforts to change from an export-driven business system to a global-network-driven business system, in which manufacturing is performed at appropriate locations globally and sales are promoted in cooperation with each region, and to establish the domestic organizational system required to drive such a business system.
We will establish Hitachi Kokusai Asia to create more business opportunities for our video and wireless network systems in ASEAN countries, South Asia such as India, and Oceania, where significant market growth is expected.
Hitachi Kokusai Asia will supervise the business locations in Korea and China as well as the regions stated above, and promote the sales of global network products and solutions including broadcasting and video equipment, for which demand will increase.
