Message from our CEO

My goal in leading Sumitomo Corporation Asia & Oceania Group has been to strengthen our market position to meet the demands of today and tomorrow.

For more than 60 years after we set foot in Asia and Oceania, we have grown from strength to strength by anticipating and influencing change. Our strategy is built upon the belief that collaborative growth is key to success – we grow only when we are able to help our suppliers, customers and business partners grow at every stage of their development and expansion. This is how we forge strong relationships that are deeply-rooted in major and emerging markets as a trusted organisation.

Asia and Oceania is now the world’s most vibrant region. It encapsulates economies at different stages of growth with varying needs and this is where we play to our competitive strengths. Our immense global network connects us with the right people and the right resources at the right time. Our vast experience and expertise in diversified business fields optimise market success. Most importantly, our ability to deliver tailored solutions helps meet not only diverse needs but changing expectations.

Moving forward, we seek to drive new opportunities with the region’s growing private sector as we build on our existing strengths. At the same time, we remain true to our commitment of generating long-term value for our stakeholders. We will continue to work passionately toward meeting economic, environmental and social challenges to bring forth a better future for all.
