Because we don’t have many opportunities to match direct faces, the real intention was born from the members such as sharp opinions, innovative ideas, current issues and more while sometimes smiling and sometimes seriously and sometimes excitingly in the Q & A session. Therefore this discussion became lively time and continued beyond the scheduled time.

Thankfully we have received many good ideas and advice to 3 projects we introduced, hence we promised to put even more efforts to promote the further outcomes.
