Following is the gist of remarks made by Chairman Yonekura at his Press Conference. Translation is rush and tentative, and sequence of the gist does not necessarily coincide with words delivered.

Typhoon Disaster on Izu Oshima Island

I extend my deepest condolences to people tortured by the latest typhoon. Another huge one is just around the corner. The repetition of disaster should never happen. All possible measures to contain the impending crisis need to be taken.

Keidanren has called on our member companies to make donations for the disaster victims via the Japanese Red Cross Society. We are hearing from the devastated area people to know what they really need so that we can take the best rescue action such as sending volunteers as well as relief goods.
