The Chemicals Division's basic strategy is to develop a broad portfolio spanning upstream and downstream in chemical products businesses while accumulating high-quality assets in each business area. Consequently, the division carries a wide lineup of competitive products, from basic chemicals through to synthetic resins, electronic materials, and raw materials for pharmaceuticals. While exploiting our global network to grow trade in those lineups, we are pursuing such far-sighted initiatives as manufacturing methanol in Brunei and investing in synthetic fiber raw materials businesses in China and in manufacturing and sales of lithium ion battery components in North America and China.
