His duties there included launching business projects, as well as providing management and financing support for invested companies and business partners in the region.

Toru has written “People who get results overseas don’t use cultural issues as an excuse”. (Eiji press)

Japan and Europe have much in common in the sense that they have achieved various innovations that impacted the world and possess an impressive cultural and historical heritage.

Now, more than ever, leaders from East and West should work hand in hand to demonstrate leadership in solving global challenges. GLOBIS Europe is committed to playing such a role by developing visionary leaders who can drive creation and innovation in society.
