July 27, 2011,08:43 +0900(JST) Smile Relay

While this blog has entered its fifth year, as I wrote in the previous entry, it now has a sister blog, "Sumitomo Electric Group Citizenship Activity: Smile Relay," which started in May 2011.

The new blog features entries posted by Sumitomo Electric Group companies or their individual employees around the world, who report on their local community or CSR activities from the standpoint of organizers of or participants in such activities.

Sumitomo Electric Group companies have for some time been carrying out various community and corporate citizen activities around the world. However, there have been few opportunities to introduce those activities to the general public; some have remained completely unknown, even within the Group. The "Smile Relay" blog is expected to change this.

At the moment, there are only a handful of posts on the blog, but Sumitomo Electric Group companies in the respective countries and regions will soon be actively taking turns, introducing their activities and relaying smiles. I hope you will start visiting and enjoying the new blog as much as this one.
