Meet historic people
There are so many historian people I want to see, but it is Mr Yataro Iwasaki, founder of Mitsubishi Group, the giant conglomatic in Japan, that I would like to meet.
Mitsubishi Group has long played an important role to commite the development of Japan. Shipbuilding was the origin of Mitsubishi group. Almost 200 years ago when Samurai era ended, and started to do business with foreigner countries, Mitsubishi expanded its business from finance to manufacture. At the world war II, Mitsubishi manufactured famous war plane, so called “Zero Plane”, which boasted its agility and its power of attack. In this time, Mitsubishi also manufactured battle ship “Musashi”, the biggest battle ship at that time. After world war II, Mitsubishi group has committed to Japanese economic revival from Banking to manufacture such as nuclear power plant to chemical goods. Obviously, Mitsubishi group has served a dominant position to the development of Japanese economic expansion.
I joined at Mitsubishi group six years ago, but from that time, Mitsubishi confronted an enourmous challenge due to the sudden change of economic trends. The strong point of Mitsubishi group such as a manufacture of a heavy machinery suddenly truns to the burden of Mitsubishi, because manufacture of heavy machinery is cost rudden industries, and rising internet technologies make the manufacture of a heavy equipment obsolete. Clearly, some changes are required for Mitsubishi group.
Since it is a time to change, I would like to meet Mr Yataro Iwasaki, the founder of Mitsubishi group. I would like to ask why he made Mitsubishi group, and how motivate to expand the group, which also gives me a motivation to revive the current Mitsubishi group. Moreover, I also ask him about how to salvage the Mitsubishi group from current challenge, which will be a clue from which we can survive from current plight.
When we confron the challenge, it would be nice idea to meet the histric people, and if I did, I would meet Mr Yataro Iwasaki to ask the clue to confront the current challenge.
