With permission from the Japanese magazine, gasworld is able to republish the Q&A with Ichihara.Q. Why are you changing to a holding company?Ichihara: We want to become a major company originating in Asia and have been strengthening our global standing since our first medium-term management plan (established in fiscal year ending March 2015).Due in part to the large acquisitions we gained 2018, second quarter performance for the fiscal year ending March 2020 shows a 55% overseas revenue ratio, with 2/3 of profit gained overseas.To achieve even greater growth, we will no longer be able to manage business over the entire world from Japan.To achieve simple and speedy management, we decided that a holding company with business in four global regions was the best fit for us.This change is also essential for our company from the viewpoint of governance as well, such as for the separation of management and business operations.Q. Why was 1st October of this year selected for the transition?Ichihara: A new medium-term management plan starts from April 2021 and we wanted to complete the transition before that to launch new growth under the best conditions possible.Of course we’ve been preparing for the new structure since before it was announced on 22nd January (2020). Introducing a holding company was one of the concepts we asked to be studied when the current medium-term managing plan was established. Adding representatives from the US and Europe to the board of directors in June last year was also part of the preparations.Q. Why was ‘Nippon Sanso’ used at the start of the name of the holding company?Ichihara: We are particular about ‘Nippon’ instead of ‘Japan’ due to its higher global name recognition. During our 40-year history in pursuing global business, the name of ‘Nippon’ has penetrated the markets first in the US and Asia, and later in Europe.In case of Europe, our European subsidiary was named ‘Nippon Gases Euro-Holding’. We wanted the name to start with ‘Nippon’ to indicate our identity as a Japanese company seeking to become a major global company.In business in Japan, we will continue to operate under the name of Taiyo Nippon Sanso and focus on increasing profitability. The purpose of this transition is to change to a structure that can simply and quickly adjust to market environments, concentrating on a smooth organisation.Q. How will you handle R&D and engineering, which are at the heart of being a gas manufacturer?Ichihara: There is no way that we’d manage all of that from a holding company. Doing so would require an enormous structure.Japan, the US and Europ will have their own characteristics and strengths and mutually interact to maximise overall strength.To achieve that, we want to work on formulation of the holding company along with several emphasis themes we’ve been promoting in the process of integration structure following acquisition of our European business.Q. What are your future ambitious?Ichihara: We have always changed to maintain the optimum structure that will enable increasing corporate value. And we will continue to change toward that end.Expanding the scale of our global business will lead to better business in Japan. We have just started to establish the new medium-term management plan.

Just as we believe that education is a right, so we believe that healthcare and the services must be a right to our people.”The scheme will be the first for Grenada and while the details of the type of health care services were not given, the minister did not state whether a cost ceiling would be applied to the scheme that would be managed by the National Insurance Scheme.“We are introducing in collaboration with the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) because we are very confident that the NIS is a reputable organisation best suited to manage the affairs for the National Health Insurance.“So brothers and sisters when we launch this initiative and when the registration process begins it means that you would have access to a special card; and this means that you will have access to a list of services including some of our diagnostic like those that you access from Spice Isle Imaging on the Carenage (a private medical diagnostic and imaging company).“We are saying the time has come that you walk to Spice Isle Imaging with your card and nobody has to ask you who you are, which constituency you came from, which insurance you [are] in or how much money you have or don’t have.“We are saying proper healthcare must be a right of the people of Grenada Carriacou and Petit Martinique,” she told party supporters.Meanwhile, Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell told supporters that the upcoming campaign for the general election constitutionally due next year, but widely expected to be held this year, will be one in his party will spending more time boasting about its positive achievement.“We will run a positive campaign…we have enough positive to boast about,” he said, even as supporters were called up to cease from engaging in activities that can bring embarrassment to the ruling party.Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell told the supporters that the upcoming campaign will be one in his party will spending more time boasting about its positive achievement.“We will run a positive campaign…we have enough positive to boast about,” he said.“Let us do what is right for the party, cease from making those mistakes that will destroy our party,” said Social Development and Housing Minister Delma Thomas.“Stop giving the opposition ammunition,” she told the supporters amid reports last week that the police had been called in to probe allegations of fraud within the government’s housing programme.The investigation is focusing on the falsification of documents of procurement for building materials and other construction items.
