It is technological challenges and demands from society that lead to innovations and new developments. One thing that is very interesting to note is that most of the past inventions, new ideas have come from people in their 20s and 30s.Therefore, this is the field where we have to support and encourage the talent. I think in this prospect the Honda Foundation has really taken the lead. I hope all the award winners today continue your learning and become those global leaders in your respective fields.
Mr. Toshio Sugiyama
Senior Vice President & Director, Honda Motor India Private Ltd.

A total of 56 students have received the Y-E-S Award in the past 5 years and many of them have availed the opportunity to visit Japan and complete theirinternship at some of the leading universities and business houses of Japan, using the privilege of Y-E-S Awardees'.
We hope that this exposure would have further widened their aspirations and motivated them to continue their endeavors in pursuit of useful and sustainable application of technology.
