Aiming to overcome global-scale difficulties
First of all, I would like to express my most sincere condolences to the families and friends of all those who have passed away due to COVID-19, as well as express my heartfelt wishes of recovery for those who are now suffering from the disease. We at Panasonic truly hope that all people return to safe and secure lives as soon as possible, and, through our business and social activities, we are firmly resolved to make our utmost efforts to fulfil our responsibilities as a public entity of society.
The difficulties we face worldwide today will eventually change our society and daily life in a drastic manner. For instance, the restrictions on activities imposed by many countries are accelerating the dissemination of various digital technologies into our homes and offices, which has compelled us to drastically change our values. Moreover, how to maintain a good physical and mental condition in everyday life will become a greater challenge than ever before.
Continuously addressing these changes while still making contributions to society and people’s lives: This is the mission Panasonic must pursue, as a company that has stayed close to people’s lives and worked to solve social problems over the past 100 years. By leveraging our cutting-edge technologies, we at Panasonic will continue to take up a variety of challenges with the aim of helping people to live healthier lives in the way most suitable for each individual, as well as helping to solve a variety of social issues. It is my firm belief that, through these endeavors, Panasonic will continue to create new contributions to people around the world, even after the COVID-19 outbreak abates.
I have no doubt that the world has the ability to eventually overcome the COVID-19 crisis.
Panasonic will walk alongside society in overcoming the current difficulties, and, always staying close to people’s lives, it will continue to work toward “A Better Life, A Better World” by taking on new challenges toward offering each individual customer his or her own optimal, comfortable life.
So I would like to ask for your continued support and patronage of Panasonic.
CEO, Panasonic Corporation
