This year, we will establish a new company in the United States, the largest and most influential medical imaging market in the world, and we will launch our "Global Marketing Center". By building a global network with our customers, we will create new value by developing products and proposing solutions that follow the latest health care trends and meet the needs of clinicians.
In the Chinese zodiac, 2023 is the year of the rabbit (卯 u), and the associated element is water (癸 mizunoto). It is said that with the combination of mizunoto and u, past efforts will bear fruit and you will make rapid progress and grow vigorously. At Canon Medical Systems, we would like to fully utilize the growth engine we have maintained to this point and make a further leap this year towards the realization of Made for Life.
Best wishes to you for a successful 2023.
President and CEO
