Mr. Peng Du, who is featured in this article, is one of the first scholarship students who received the Panasonic Scholarship when we started to invite and accredit foreign students locally in various countries. For Mr. Du, who was about to graduate from Peking University, studying in Japan became an unexpected turning point in his life. Currently, he is active in the field of business connecting Japan, China and the world while working in Japan. He can see the concrete results of his role in connecting people from different backgrounds, and possibilities for the future. He is confident, “true feelings can always be conveyed” and “empathy can be achieved” even in situations where different cultures, diverse needs, or complex international communications are involved. The origin of that belief lies in the Panasonic Scholarship, he says.
