According to a report by Kyodo News Agency on February 10, Akio Toyoda, president of Toyota Motor Company, criticized Yoshiro Mori on the 10th, “It’s really a pity that this is different from the values Toyota has always attached importance to.” According to the report, Toyota is the highest-level sponsor of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
According to the report, Akio Toyoda said in a statement that he became a sponsor because he agreed with the Olympic spirit of “building peace and a society without discrimination through sports” and “a society in which everyone can participate”, and Yoshiro Mori’s statement contradicted these spirits.
He did not mention Mori’s question of staying.
The report mentioned that Tian Jun, the executive chairman of the Toyota Financial News press conference, read Akio Toyoda’s statement on his behalf.
Nagata said: “In order to let the society correctly understand what Toyota attaches importance to, we don’t think we can’t be silent here.”
In addition to Toyota, executives of another sponsor, ENEOS parent company, also expressed “extreme regret” and so on.
“I also regret that I respect human rights as stipulated in the standards of conduct of our group are also extremely regretted,” Satoichiro Tanaka, executive executive director of ENEOS Holdings, also said at the financial press conference on February 10.
In addition, the economic criticism of Yoshiro Mori is also rising.
