This is not a cause for celebration. The target should be 50%. 30% is a disgrace.

Good to see have increased the percentage these past few years. Way to go Japan.

Ah, the job hat everybody wants and only a chosen few can get. However, I’m curious to know if these female employees were chosen on merit or gender.

"We'd like to provide a working environment friendly to women and continue our efforts to increase female recruits"

 I think this should have been translated as "We'd like to provide a working environment friendly to women as part of our efforts to increase female recruits"

Unfortunately, this is the only sector I would not be celebrating any increases in.
