Our Action towards the National Announcement of lifting the State of Emergency


To Our Valued Partners,

We, thank you for your continued support and cooperation towards our company.
We truly hope that you, your family and all your colleagues are safe & well on your side.
At the same time, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to those who are affected by the infection and praying for their quick recovery. 

Our Government has announced the lifting of the State of Emergency for all prefectures in Japan, on Monday, 25th May 2020. The risk of infection cannot be brought down to zero even after the lifting of the emergency, but social and economic activities will reopen in stages across the nation.  

Based on the current situation, we will continue to implement the following measures for the purpose of cooperating to prevent the spread of infection, reduce the health risks of our customers, business partners, our employees as well as the healthcare professionals.

<Practical Measures>

・ All GMT employees will work from home and some will be on a temporary leave of absence.

・ Due to the rotation of our daily business operation will be with a limited number of workforce, correspondence will be made by emails and we will not be able to accept inquiries by telephones. 

<Duration of the Practical Measures>

・Continuing from May until 30th June 2020

** The above period as well as the current practical measures may be reviewed depending on the actual spread of the infection within Japan and further notification of our government policy. We apologize in advance that we may continue to cause you some inconveniences with delays in answering to your urgent inquiries or questions due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, but we kindly ask for your continued understanding and cooperation.

Yours Sincerely,
