Message From General Manager

Dear Customers and Partners,

Welcome to Mitsubishi Corporation!

Mitsubishi Corporation is Japan's largest and most diverse general trading and investment company with over 120 bases of operations in approximately 90 countries worldwide. Together with our network of over 1,700 group companies, we employ a multinational workforce of about 80,000 people. We have long been engaged in business with customers around the world in virtually every industry, including energy, metals, machinery, industrial finance, logistics & development, chemicals and living essentials.

We see Singapore branch office as a gateway to Asia and beyond.

Having started our activities as general trading house, our operations have since expanded far beyond traditional trading activities to include investments and business management in diverse fields including natural resources development, manufacturing of industrial goods, retail, new energy, infrastructure and new technology-related businesses. Here in Singapore, which is strategically located at the crossroads of Asia Pacific region and a gateway to the regional as well as international market, we have embraced more important roles and functions, with the establishment of the Corporate Center for Asia & Oceania in Singapore in Apr 2013 to support our companies' activities in the region.

We grow in tandem with Singapore's development.

As the Singapore branch office celebrates our 65th year anniversary in year 2020, a wide spectrum of our activities have grown in tandem with the rapid development of Singapore. We have been fortunate to have been a part of various infrastructure projects undertaken by the government or government-owned corporations, such as power generation plants, incineration plant and LRT lines. Capitalising on our extensive global network, we are also forging partnerships with government and Singapore-based companies to identify new business opportunities in Singapore and as well as emerging markets in the region, as both the government and private sector companies of Singapore increasingly take initiative to build their presence in overseas.

We embrace environmental and social sustainability.

Moving forward, we will continue to enhance the Environmental and Social Sustainability (ESS) of our business operations. We are working with companies on the joint development of a sustainable hydrogen economy in Singapore as well as exploring innovative solutions to decarbonise our supply chains on the environmental front. In addition, we actively participate in (Corporate Social Responsibility) CSR activities by contributing to the fields of education, arts & culture and environment in Singapore with our sponsorship to Singapore's National Gallery, Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, ISEAS–Yusof Ishak Institute, Gardens by the Bay etc. In line with our Corporate Philosophy of "Corporate Responsibility to Society", our goal is to contribute to the continuous advancement of society while raising consolidated corporate value and developing the expertise of our employees.

We embrace the new digital transformation.

As Singapore embarks on its digital transformation towards a Smart Nation & Digital Economy, we are also digitising our business operations to improve efficiency and generate more value for our customers and partners. This is in line with MC's new Midterm Corporate Strategy 2021 which involves strengthening our IT capabilities and enhancing our digital strategies.

We overcome new challenges and seize new opportunities.

In the years ahead, the COVID19 pandemic and globalisation will bring new challenges and opportunities for the economy. I, together with our staff look forward to taking on new challenges and seizing new opportunities in the future with the continued support and blessings of our customers and business partners.

Mitsubishi Corporation,
Singapore Branch
