The group’s medium-term vision is to become the world’s number one apparel retailer. "In pursuit of this aim, we are focusing our efforts on expanding Uniqlo International and our GU. We continue to increase Uniqlo store numbers in each country where we operate, and open global flagship stores and large-format stores in major cities around the world to help consolidate Uniqlo’s position as a key global brand. In terms of the GU operation, we plan to open more GU stores in Japan, while expanding the brand’s international presence, especially in Greater China," Fast Retailing press release said.

As the Fast Retailing Group expands its business globally, it remains committed to integrating environmental and social sustainability into our operations from a long-term perspective. Its sustainability initiatives are conducted across four priority areas: supply chain, products, stores and communities, and employees. (RR)
