The "Smile Relay" begins.

Hi, my name is Sakai, and I'm in charge of the Smile Relay of the Public Relations Department.

Upon commencement of the "Smile Relay," I would like to briefly introduce this blog.

The Sumitomo Electric Group is a large corporate enterprise with more than 300 consolidated subsidiaries in over 30 countries worldwide, mainly in Japan, Asia, the U.S. and Europe, employing more than 170,000 people. The Group not only provides outstanding products and services, but also respects the cultures and customs of each country and region in order to contribute to the local economy and society through socially harmonious corporate activities. In this blog, we hope to introduce scenes of smiling exchanges and communications born through corporate citizen activities conducted by Group employees all over the world.

If you would like to learn more about the Group's fundamental principles of social contribution, please visit for more details.

... OK, enough with the formal talk :-)
I personally think that Sumitomo Electric tends to be invisible to the public eye, both in its products and its social contribution activities. As the person in charge, I would like this blog to give the company a face that the public can relate to!

Also, we have added Comments and Trackback functions to the blog to enable bilateral communication with our blog readers. We welcome and eagerly await your opinions and comments! :-)
Thank you for reading, and please look forward to additional exciting entries.

In starting this blog, I thought that posting only an introductory entry wouldn't do... So, below are recaps of some of our past activities. Please take a look! ;-)
