Global Training Program Trainee and supervisor at the host base
I applied for the Global Training Program and was transferred to the US development base as an engineer. I learned that active communication and autonomous action are essential for building trust with members who have different approaches and customs from my own. I want to continue striving to maintain a global perspective and be able to work in a broad sphere that crosses borders.

I believe that this program is useful for deepening mutual understanding and also effective for increasing skills and knowledge. Communication between groups is becoming much smoother than before as the number of trainees increases, and I can truly sense how this will create new value.
