Mitsubishi Corporation India is exploring new business opportunities and innovation such as agriculture equipment rental and using drones in pesticide application, said Eisuke Shiozaki, Chairman and Managing Director.

These are in early stages yet and “Mitsubishi is on a learning curve in farm business,” he said in a millennium lecture organised by the Hindu Media Resource Centre at the MS Swaminathan Research Foundation.

In this context, the introduction of the Goods and Services Tax is a welcome step for foreign companies entering new markets as “GST is simpler to understand” as compared with the earlier tax regime, he said.

Use of new technologies in agriculture operations can help address the shortage of manpower India faces in agriculture. In Japan too, land holdings are small and the similarities could be exploited to bring in appropriate technology and equipment.

Shiozaki underscored the role of society in conservation of resources.

As much as the change in corporate mindset, the society mindset too, should change.
