In April 2016, MHI launched a new Shared Technology framework consolidating the Company's technologies as well as its marketing, procurement, and other functions, overseen by the CTO. We created this framework to maximize the MHI Group's comprehensive technological strength to bolster competitiveness over the medium to long term. About Research and Development, in 2015 we established a comprehensive Research & Development Center, consolidating five domestic R&D centers and transitioning to cross-organizational management in our R&D structure. Through this approach, we anticipate new technological synergies, enhanced human resource development, and greater effciency in work performance and facility utilization. We are globalizing our R&D structure, and as part of these efforts, we are dispatching specialist engineers from research centers in Japan to our bases in the United Kingdom, Singapore, the United States, and China. We are making efforts to secure leading global technologies, information, and human resources, while conducting research and providing technological support that is closely aligned with market needs.
