【Comment by Mr. Hideto Onishi, Mayor of Takamatsu】

I’m very pleased that we signed the Comprehensive Agreement on Collaboration and Cooperation with Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan. I believe, in providing public services, it’s very important to collaborate and cooperate with businesses as they are engaged in various activities. Therefore, it’s really meaningful to sign this agreement with Coca-Cola Bottlers Japan, and we’re delighted about it. We’d appreciate your cooperation in operating cultural and sports projects, and also in other various fields such as environmental measures, industrial and tourism promotion.

We’re always working on how to contribute to the people in the region as one of our tasks. Therefore, we’re deeply grateful we signed the Comprehensive Agreement on Collaboration and Cooperation with Takamatsu City. As Mayor Onishi said, torchbearers will be running through the city of Takamatsu on April 19, and all sorts of preparations are already underway. So, please feel free to talk to us and make suggestions as we hopefully contribute to the health and well-being of the people of Takamatsu, even just a little. We’ll think and work together with you and appreciate your continued support.
