Hitachi Social Innovation Forum

Hitachi's annual event in Japan was first brought to Southeast Asia - Singapore - in November 2014 as the company celebrated its 50th anniversary in Singapore. Following its success, the Hitachi Social Innovation Forum (HSIF) has since made its way to Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

At the respective forums, Hitachi was honored by the esteemed presence of distinguished guests, including H.E.

Leah V. Merida-Quiambao from Legal Affairs, on behalf of Secretary Arthur P. Tugade (Department of Transportation, Republic of the Philippines).
