General Meeting of Shareholders

The 96th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders

We appear currently to be in a critical stage in which the spread of the novel coronavirus has yet to be completely contained. After careful consideration based on the current stage, we have judged that it is unfortunately necessary to significantly reduce the size of this Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders.
Therefore, we will hold the meeting at our Osaka Headquarters, only with ITOCHU Corporation’s officers, and without the attendance of shareholders. We ask for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
We therefore ask all shareholders to refrain from attending this Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders in person. Please read the Notice of the 96th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders below and exercise your voting rights in writing or via the Internet or other means.
 

If there are any changes, we will notify you on this page.
For more information about this Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders, please contact us through Inquiries.
