On that day, we were blessed with the weather, and about 50 people from the three companies (Takano General Accounting Office, Meisei Audit Corporation, Kyoritsu Audit Corporation) and business partners who made up HLB Japan gathered at the venue.

What impressed the entire venue was Dr. Kanno’s speech, which he actually experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake. Using photos and videos, he talked about the disaster and the importance of people’s bonds. He strongly appealed the importance of sharing the experiences learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake with society as a whole.

Through this reception party, HLB Japan strengthened its cooperation with the HLBI headquarters. The three HLB Japan corporations also deepened mutual friendships and reaffirmed the strengthening of their cooperative relationships. At this reception party, we hope to deepen exchanges with invited business partners and lead to new business opportunities.
