President's Greeting

Dear MHR Stakeholders:

Ever since the establishment of the former Mitsui & Co. in 1876, Mitsui has always placed human resources among its most vital corporate resources, and therefore, has wholeheartedly committed itself to the development and education of Mitsui staff. To invest in people to cultivate their full potential is at the heart of the philosophy of Mitsui group companies.

MHR was established as an independent organization, solely to undertake HRD for Mitsui & Co. and Mitsui group companies. We carry out planning and implementation of training programs and provide a support role for HRD efforts. Cultivating staff members who will be capable enough to support or lead Mitsui group companies in the future is a critical mission for us.

As we deal with people on a daily basis, there is one important policy of which we remain ever cognizant: Never forget to extend your caring mind to the people around you. We believe that, without such warmth, HRD cannot be implemented. To be always caring, fair, and modest as we strive to achieve our mission is our basic code of conduct.

More than 40,000 people are working within Mitsui group companies worldwide. MHR has tremendous faith in individual potential. It is therefore our firm belief that if we can assist Mitsui staff worldwide to develop and utilize their potential to the fullest extent, we can make our world much better and brighter.

We will do our utmost to continue to fervently develop the potential of next-generation Mitsui group staff.

With best regards,
Iwao Kameyama
