Minoru Usui, president of Epson, emphasized that customers always come first for the company, which focuses on leveraging its efficient, compact and precision technology - to achieve energy efficiency, miniaturization, and precision and accuracy - to drive innovations.

He said the current business environment is complicated, and the speed of technological innovation, such as artificial intelligence and the internet of things, is very fast. Therefore, enterprises need to pay more attention to the fast-changing world, keep pace with change and seize opportunities.

After being appointed president in 2008, Usui began planning Epson's mid-and long-range growth strategy amid the harsh economic environment that followed the international financial crisis.

In an interview with China Daily, Usui elaborated on his vision and shared his thoughts on Epson's commitment to technological innovation and its development plan in the Chinese market.
