Holding Suppliers Conference
Honda holds Suppliers Conference in order to share business directions and purchasing policies with them.
At one such meeting in January 2013 attended by the top management of 323 suppliers, President Takanobu Ito outlined Honda’s companywide policies, and Naoto Matsui, Chief Operating Officer of Purchasing Operations, discussed the company’s purchasing policies.
Honda also presented letters of appreciation in recognition of its gratitude to suppliers who made outstanding contributions to the company’s business throughout the year in cost, quality, development, parts, and environmental categories.
The event provided an opportunity for Honda and its suppliers to strengthen their partnership and reaffirm their understanding of the need to work together closely to achieve Honda’s 2013 business objectives.
