Swiss Re's 150 Years Anniversary event in Tokyo
(Swiss Reinsurance Company Japan Branch)

Celebrating 150 years is an excellent opportunity for us to say "Thank you" to all those who've helped us to reach this important milestone – our partners and clients.

Our anniversary event began with the 'Open Minds' expo – a unique opportunity to see some very interesting artefacts, first contracts and other historical documents that showcased Swiss Re's heritage and aspirations. Participants also explored how Swiss Re is using multimedia to communicate about risks with videos, 'The Perils of Man' iPad game, and flood and ageing apps.

The evening reception began with a warm welcome by Steve Arora, Head of Swiss Re Japan, in Japanese. Walter B. Kielholz, Chairman of Swiss Re's Board of Directors then shared a few words with participants, followed by an address from our keynote speaker Mrs Sadako Ogata. As former United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and former President of Japan International Cooperation Agency, Mrs Ogata provided a fascinating perspective on human protection and called for global collaboration in this area.

One of the many joyful moments was the 'Kagami-biraki' ceremony, a Japanese celebratory ritual translating literally as "opening the lid" of the sake barrel. The lid's round shape symbolises harmony and good fortune.

To accompany the excellent fusion of Swiss and Japanese food, music was provided by the famous Jonathan Katz's Tokyo big band, and the beautiful voice of Swedish jazz pop singer Lisa Lovbrand, bringing a unique interpretation of traditional Japanese music.

"Thank you once again for joining our celebrations and, more importantly, for being part of our history, our journey and our story. We are excited about working together with you and making an even better future. Arigatou gozaimasu."
Steve Arora, Head of Swiss Re Japan

(スイス再保険会社 日本支店)

創立150周年の祝賀行事は、スイス・リーがこの重要な節目を迎える今日まで支えてくださった方々、つまりパートナーやお客様へ、感謝の言葉をお伝えする最高の機会です。

今回の記念イベントは「オープン・マインズ・エキスポ('Open Minds' expo )」と共に幕を開けました。ここでは初めて締結した契約書や歴史的な文書など当社の興味深い品々が展示され、スイス・リーの受け継いできたものや志をご紹介するユニークな展覧会となりました。また訪れた人々は、スイス・リーがマルチメディアを活用したリスク周知活動をどのように行っているか、動画やiPadゲーム「The Perils of Man」(人が直面する危険)、洪水や老化を体験できるアプリなどを使って体験しました。

夜の祝賀レセプションは、スイス・リー日本支店代表、スティーブ・アローラによる日本語での歓迎スピーチで盛大に始まりました。そしてスイス・リー・グループ取締役会長ワルター B. キールホルツのご挨拶の後、緒方貞子様より基調講演をいただきました。国連難民高等弁務官、独立行政法人国際協力機構理事長を歴任された緒方様は、人道救助活動の大切さと、世界的な協力の必要性についてお話し下さいました。

数々の楽しい瞬間の中でも、最も印象的だったもののひとつが「鏡開き」です。これは日本のお祝いの儀式であり、文字通り酒樽の蓋を開けるのです。蓋の丸い形は、調和や幸運を意味するそうです。

スイスと日本の融合をテーマとした料理が振る舞われ、これに有名なジョナサン・カッツの東京ビッグバンドの演奏や、美しい歌声で日本の伝統的音楽に独自の解釈を与えるスウェーデン人のジャズポップシンガー、リサ・ラヴブランドのパフォーマンスが宴に華を添えました。

「あらためて、祝賀会にお越しいただいた皆様に御礼を申し上げるとともに、私どもの歴史、旅、そしてストーリーの一部で引き続きいてくださることに、心から感謝を申し上げたいと思います。皆様と協力し、ともにより良い未来を築いていくことを願ってやみません。ありがとうございます。」
