CEO’s Message

President’s Message

Toward “A Better Life, A Better World”
– Panasonic’s Endeavors for the Next 100 Years

In 2018, the Panasonic Corporation is celebrating its centennial anniversary. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of our customers, business partners, and many others who have supported us throughout our long history.

“Make contributions to the progress of society and the well-being of people through our business activities” has been our underlying corporate philosophy over the past 100 years. Moving into our second century, we stand firmly behind this philosophy and will continue making new contributions by always staying close to our customers’ lives.

The environment in which we work is changing rapidly and drastically. The consumers’ needs are becoming ever more complex and diverse, while social issues, such as the environment, the aging population, and labor shortages, also vary among the worlds’ countries and regions. In this constantly evolving world, offering “tangible” products, as we have done in the past, is not enough. We are challenging ourselves to open new frontiers, in “intangible” areas such as energy and services.

Listening to the needs of our customers is our top priority. We work hard to improve our engineering and manufacturing capabilities and to commit ourselves to the pursuit of better lives for people. That is exactly how we at Panasonic aspire to bring “A Better Life, A Better World” to each and every customer.

We are taking a new step forward into our next century. Please join us in our endeavors as we continue to advance toward the future.
