International exchange activities based on a diverse range of cultures and values [Sanda Plant]

Our Sanda Plant (Hyogo prefecture) organized a lecture as part of education in international understanding at the city's Nagasaka Junior High School. Chinese employee Shoubin Zhang talked about the importance of understanding and learning about cultures and people from other countries based on an appreciation of your own country's culture and values, in order to play an active role in our global society. Comments from students included "it made me want to work harder at learning languages" and "I want to make difference in the world." Zhang has been involved in activities in areas such as international exchange, and promoting friendship between Japan and China, since his days as an overseas student, before joining the company. With 24,000 employees in 29 different countries, we have employees with many different nationalities, backgrounds and values working for the Mitsubishi Materials Group. We intend to continue with international exchange activities in the future, based on the spirit of mutual respect that we have built up between employees.
