With the rapid progress of globalization now taking place in the academic world, it is very timely that the Society of Global Business has been created as a place for the exchange of ideas between renown figures in various fields. It is a great pleasure for me to see the establishment of this newly formed society and to be a part of it. As president, I want to sincerely encourage and welcome as many people as possible to join us. I look forward to personally meeting each of you.
Kiyoshi Kobayashi, President
