Comment from the recipient:

It is truly an honor to receive this unexpected conferment. Rather than accepting on my own, I accept it as a representative of the associated industries and of our corporate group, with which I have been involved for many years. It was due to the advice and encouragement of many people that I was able to receive this honor. I will certainly do my best to make further contribution to society and would like to ask for your continuing support and cooperation.
