Since FY2017, Mars Logistics Group Inc., our Turkish group company, has been holding a traffic and road safety class for children. In the class, we use the rear deck of a truck as a classroom, prepare creative learning tools such as quizzes using a tablet terminal and a worksheet on which children can put stickers on so that children can develop a better understanding about road signs while having fun. We refrained from holding seminars in FY2020 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
