【Background of the Sponsorship Agreement】
Comment from Yoshihisa Kainuma, Representative Director, CEO & COO, MinebeaMitsumi Inc.
Cambodia's economic growth rate is about 7% (projection for 2019 by the National Bank of Cambodia) and despite the country's rapid economic growth, it is said that the average age of the population is about 25.6 years old (UN data) and it is the young people who support the country's growth and development. Football is one of the most popular sports in Cambodia and the Cambodia National Football Team Keisuke Honda joins as the General Manager attracts worldwide attention not only in Cambodia and Japan.
At the same time, MinebeaMitsumi has many products that boast the world's top market share, including our mainstay miniature and small-sized ball bearings. We also engage in business activities aiming to be No. 1 in the global field.
By supporting the challenges and activities of the Cambodia National Football Team on the global stage, we would like to share "passion" that is also stated in our slogan "Passion to Create Value through Difference" as well as confidence and joy with young Cambodian people who support Cambodian economy and aim for further growth on the world stage.
