Moving on Philippines politics and economy, the economy continues to grow strongly and it's transforming into investment-driven one with the government aggressive investment in infrastructure. For example, the country's first every subway is "on track" with the groundbreaking scheduled in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Also the relationship between Philippines and Japan is getting closer in the field of politics, economy and human resources.

How did you recognize such changes and what did you think?

No target, no change.

As you may already understand, we don't need ordinary words such as "Best effort", "Client's satisfaction", instead we should have specific target to overcome as a profesional business person.

Last 2017 we have achieved some but need to recognize could not achieve some. Having individual clear objective, please be reminded again that we shall challenge "400 million sales" as 3 year Midterm plan 2016-2018.
