The Year in Review & Optimism for 2022

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

This year is a special year for Cosmo Public Relations Corporation (“COSMO”). It marks our 60th anniversary. This occasion has allowed for some personal reflection on where COSMO has come from and where we would like to go in the future.

We started 60 years ago as one of Japan’s first PR firms. Our vision was to THINK BIG and help Japanese companies explore the cosmos and expand overseas. These companies have now become household names worldwide. Japan has so much to offer, and I would like to continue to help companies bring Japan to the rest of the world.

On the other hand, for smaller foreign-based companies, Japan can be mysterious and unknown. With our multi-cultural based approach, COSMO is uniquely positioned to help companies with expansion plans into Japan. I want to increase our efforts in this area to ensure that people in Japan have the opportunities to benefit from overseas products and services.

Over the past year, I have also reflected on personal convictions, which have been re-affirmed. I believe that there is an increasing need to focus on Mental Health and ensure that there is early diagnosis and treatment. I also believe that we still have a long way to go in ensuring there is more focus on Women’s Health. To advance earlier diagnosis and appropriate treatment, Diagnostics and Medical Devices will be increasingly important. I will continue to advocate in all of these areas. Finally, having spent many years hearing stories about patient journeys with Rare Disease, I would like to continue to advocate for greater awareness, earlier diagnosis, and better treatment. I would like COSMO to partner with you and continue to focus on helping patients to have an opportunity for a better life.

I look toward 2022 with great optimism. I want to start the year with the mindset of, “Together we can change the world…one step at a time.”

  • Together we can raise awareness of disease areas that are underdiagnosed
  • Together we can help more Japanese companies become household names worldwide
  • Together we can help more foreign-based companies navigate Japan
  • Together we can dream of what’s possible and make it a reality

I would like to express our sincere gratitude to all for your support this year. Through the power of communication, together we can take on any challenges and make the dreams that are out there under the cosmos a reality.

I wish you all a very healthy and happy new year.

Kumi Sato
President and CEO
