PREX VISION
(Plans for 2008)

"We aspire to become an indispensable player for developing countries and Kansai."

We aim to establish ourselves as a major entity integral to the field of middle-management training, an essential requirement for economic progress for developing countries. We also aspire to be a key player in promoting self-reliance and the development of the local communities of Kansai region.

PREX'S PHILOSOPHY AND MISSION

1. We focus on middle-management human resource development and thereby assist developing countries in achieving growth.
We believe a fully skilled middle management is essential for company growth. Furthermore, growth in the Asia-Pacific region will lead to the growth of our Kansai region in the long term.
2. We take advantage of ODA to help develop human resources.
It is important to use the ODA funds to their full potential, by ensuring coordination between industry, government and academia. We endeavor to make the Japanese ODA fully appreciated through our activities.
3. We promote an increased flux of human resource exchanges through seminar activities.
We aspire to become an indispensable force that promotes exchanges between Kansai and the Asia- Pacific region. We connect the excellent human and infrastructure resources of Kansai with developing nations by providing the promising talent from these countries with opportunities to learn in Kansai. We also hope these activities will lead to an appreciation of what Kansai has to offer.
