TAISEI VISION 2030 and Medium-Term Business Plan (2021–2023)

The Taisei Group analyzed the reasons for the failure to achieve the goals of the previous Medium-Term Business Plan, and identified the medium- to long-term external environment and structural changes.
Based on this analysis, we formulated TAISEI VISION 2030, our medium- to long-term vision in line with the Taisei Group Philosophy and other factors. As for the newly launched Medium-Term Management Plan (2021–2023), we have positioned it as “Focus on efforts to realize TAISEI VISION 2030.”
