Mitsubishi Corporation Establishes New Branches in Akita and Choshi

TOKYO, Oct 26, 2022 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) is pleased to announce that it will be opening two new Japanese branches in November 2022, one in Akita City, Akita Prefecture, and the other in Choshi City, Chiba Prefecture.

In May of this year, MC announced its new management plan, entitled "Midterm Corporate Strategy 2024 - Creating MC Shared Value." The plan details MC's growth strategy to promote regional revitalization through utilizing integrated EX (Energy Transformations) and DX (Digital Transformations) initiatives. MC has embarked on initiatives to promote specific measures for regional revitalization throughout the company, including the creation of new carbon-neutral industries, supporting smooth transitions to decarbonized societies and developing vibrant communities.

The establishment will mark the first time in 35 years that MC has had new branches in Japan. MC was appointed as one of the operators of Japan's first, general-sea-area fixed-foundation wind farm which is being developed off the coasts of Akita and Choshi areas in December 2021. Considering how this wind-farm project is expected to play a big role in shaping the future of both districts, MC is now making efforts to strengthen ties with the local government authorities, business partners and residents. Through those efforts and our close collaborations with the wind-farm project companies(1), we are committed to making steady progress in both districts.

MC has always been working to stimulate economic development and improve quality of life by continuously creating new businesses, addressing social needs and challenges in the light of the changing world. As we continue our search for those solutions, would like to continue to be an enterprise that steadily grows in step with society.
