The article was written by Mr. Tsushima, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Kaiji Press. He added his insights and analysis from a journalist's point of view to the content of the recent of the briefing session we held for our business partners.

I think it is an excellent article that speaks clearly about our company's actual situation and direction.
