Happy New Year to you all!
We hope that you have had a happy and healthy New Year.
I can't thank you enough for your continued support during the past year,
despite the uncertainty of the end of the COVID‑19 situation.
It has been years in which society and people's lives have been
rapidly transformed in so many ways that it seems impossible to stem the tide.
I would like to take this opportunity to reiterate my appointment
as President and Representative Director of Luci Co., Ltd., effective 1 November last year.
It is a great honour for me to be given this important responsibility at a time of great change.
In this context, I believe that our mission is to "create value" and
"continue to provide value" to the market and our customers
by thinking through what we, Luci, can do and by reconfirming our own strengths.
We will keep this in mind as we work as a team to improve our products and services.
There is a Buddhist term that I like to use, "the impermanence of all things".
In order to face this reality, I would like to look forward to the future even in difficult times,
and to remain unchanged and unconcerned even in good times.
We will do our best to step forward to a bright future with you.
I would like to wish you all a very happy and healthy New Year.
We look forward to working with you in 2022.
