Approaches to community involvement and development
The Fujitsu General Group considers the "Promotion of Education for the Next Generation" and "Promotion of community coexistence" to be key issues for community involvement. We wish to convey the excitement of product creation and manufacturing to children who will lead the next generation, and nurture human resources who will be involved in manufacturing in the future. In addition, by holding various events for local residents, we aim to play a role in the development of local communities.
