4) JOINT RESEARCH - Promoting joint research programs on global management issues.

In order to implement theseactivities, the following measures will be established:

I would like to make IUJ the center of global leader development in order to help Japanese corporations, and Japan as a whole, to advance strategic growth."

Regarding the launch of the Partnership, a number of corporate executives issued messages of support:

-- Mr. Fumio Otsubo, President, Panasonic Corporation
