・The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated social change, including technological advancements and a growing awareness of the SDGs. Adding to structural problems like declining and aging populations in local communities, worldwide environmental changes through digitalization and globalization are affecting the global environment, elevating uncertainty. As the business environment changes, we see making new investments, including DX promotion, as critical, and are building an online-based sales and administrative infrastructure premised on a future vision of society.
We will expand our customer contact points by promoting DX in all aspects of sales and by building digital channels for both private and corporate customers. And we will enable remote access to all types of banking transactions to boost customer convenience and lift business productivity.
Our advanced financial services will be available anytime, anywhere,with carefulattention to detail, through evolving communication with customers via digital channels, utilizing data, and refining the expertise of our sales staff.
