On Wednesday, 7th June, we had an opening ceremony at our new office to celebrate the launch of our new business. Asahi Broadcasting Corporation established a subsidiary, ABC HORIZON in Singapore on 2nd May.
Over one hundred people joined us, including Shaun Seow, CEO of Mediacorp, as well as business partners from Japan, Singapore and the rest of Asia.
At the opening ceremony, our managing directors, Mr. Okinaka and Mr. Honda, gave a brief explanation of the business and their hopes for the future.
They also handed out original ABC HORIZON candy as a souvenir for everyone who came. Our parent company, Asahi Broadcasting Corporation, is located in Osaka, Japan where there is a custom of carrying candy as an ice-breaker and gift for any strangers you might meet. This custom is called Ame-Chan and ABC HORIZON hopes to become a heart-warming communication tool across the region, just like Ame-Chan is back in Osaka.
We would like to express our deepest appreciation to everyone who attended and presented us with beautiful celebratory flowers.
