We will apply our advanced recycling technologies to improve resource efficiency. And we will develop new materials and technologies for minimizing environmental impact through molecular engineering.
Unifying tire specifications at a high level at our plants worldwide will support increased flexibility in serving demand. And we will supplement our Japanese tire-development capabilities by expanding our development center in China and by building development centers in Thailand and the United States.
