    MHI FUTURE STREAM: Indicating MHI Group's Direction


    To continue to contribute to society and humanity through the provision of machine systems, it is necessary for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group to be a company that can sustainably grow with the capability of responding to rapid changes in the social agenda, people's values, technological innovation, etc. MHI FUTURE STREAM is an activity for setting MHI Group's business direction according to several possible scenarios that are formulated based on the big picture of changes in the political, economic, social, and technological situations surrounding our business from a medium- to long-term perspective. With regard to the three approaches of "Mega Scan", "Shift the Path" and "Technology Scouting", which were described as components of MHI FUTURE STREAM in previous Technical Review, this report describes the notable megatrends, the direction of our group's business shift theretoward, and the activities of Yokohama Hardtech Hub, which was newly inaugurated as a co-creation platform.
