“Panasonic products make life easier. But the best products you have been giving to the Philippine society are these young people, who if it will not for your sacrifice to part away with a portion of your earnings to help them learn a trade and engage in productive activity for the Philippine economy to progress, many young Filipinos would just flood the street and become potential risks to peace and order in our land,” said Don Bosco Technical College (DBTC)-Mandaluyong vice rector Fr. Demetrio Carmona during his opening message commending Panasonic for the Company’s continuing endeavor to contribute in preparing and securing a better future for the less privileged but deserving students.  

Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation (PMPC) president & Panasonic Scholarship (Philippines) chairman Shinichi Hayashi thanked the various individuals and groups, who continued to support in promoting the very objective of the Panasonic Scholarship Program and in ensuring that all the business activities of Panasonic in the Philippines are appropriate for its basic concept that ‘a company is a public entity of society’. 

“As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Panasonic operation in the Philippines this year, and the upcoming 100th year anniversary of our Panasonic Corporation next year, I thank you for your continued support and cooperation in all our programs and activities aimed at contributing to society. I hope that by offering opportunities like this, we can spell out clearly our commitment to provide a healthy upbringing to our younger generation, who will be responsible for the future of our planet, by giving them the chance to make the most of their individual abilities to contribute also in pursuing a better life and realizing a better world,” Mr. Hayashi said. 

Mr. Haruhisa Okuda, Panasonic Corporation’s CSR & Citizenship Department manager, reiterated that the scholarship program is one of the expressions of gratitude of Panasonic Corporation to the continuing support of society to the Company. 

“As a public entity of society, Panasonic operates for the improvement of social life and the development of world culture, not only in doing its business, but also in its corporate citizenship activities. And this Panasonic scholarship is one aspect of our efforts to develop human resources by supporting those, who really want to study,” said Mr. Okuda.



Panasonic Corporation funds the localized Panasonic Scholarship programs in the Asian region. And in the Philippines, the scholarship program, which is offered to undergraduate and vocational students is administered by Panasonic Manufacturing Philippines Corporation with the support of Panasonic Precision Devices Philippines Corporation.
