The Bank’s collaboration with MUFG network, which has now entered its third year and our focus on blue chip and State-Owned Enterprises customers, has supported growth in loans within our Enterprise Banking and Financial Institution segment. We remain confident that our collaborative initiatives with MUFG will continue to provide a strong foundation for healthy funding and reliable banking services to support business activities that have been limited by social restrictions due to the pandemic,” explained Danamon’s President Director, Yasushi Itagaki.
Initiatives to ensure high-quality, value-added services, as well as seamless banking access to banking customers through steady enhancement of digital services and infrastructure development remain Danamon’s focal point strategies.
In supporting economic recovery, the Bank also maintained initiatives to provide vaccinations to our employees, customers, as well as the general public to support government programs in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 infection.
