Medium-Term Management Plan 2024

1. About the formulation of Medium-Term Management Plan 2024
 In September 2018, the 50th anniversary of our founding, Kaga Electronics Co., Ltd. formulated its Medium-Term Management Plan 2021, covering the fiscal year ended March 2020 to the fiscal year ending March 2022. Viewing this three-year plan as a growth scenario aimed at the next 50 years, we have worked to carry out the plan's measures.
