In the Global Segment, we have already expanded into 11 Asian countries, where we mainly offer medical-related services.
As the circumstance of each country, though located in the same Asian region, is quite different, we aim to build an information infrastructure optimized for each country by deeply understanding their social and cultural backgrounds, the trends of their medical and nursing care policies, and their business environments.
We have thus developed unique services in most countries, completely different from those offered in Japan.
In addition, taking advantage of our wide presence in the whole Asian region, we endeavor to develop a cross-regional business by discovering a theme which is common to the countries.
