Meiji Group's STEP UP 17 — our medium-term business plan for FYE March 2016 through FYE March 2018 — marks the second phase of our long-term 2020 Vision initiative. STEP UP 17 aims to accelerate sales and improve overall profitability.
Based on the Group's guiding philosophy, we kicked off 2020 Vision in 2010, which set specific goals that we aimed to achieve by FYE March 2021. The initiative was divided into three medium-term business plans, the first of which (TAKE OFF 14) successfully ended in FYE March 2015. We are now working to achieve our goals for FYE March 2018 and FYE March 2021.
