Mitsui Chemicals positions its agrochemical business as one its "Five Priority Businesses", which are resilient to fluctuating economic conditions, in its 2011 Mid-term Business Plan (FY2011-FY2013) and has proactively pursued expansion.

In line with the fundamental strategy of the Mid-term Business Plan, MCAG, which is responsible for the Mitsui Chemicals Group's agrochemical business, reached an agreement to purchase IBIQ shares to establish closer cooperation with Brazil's strongest pesticide manufacturer/distributor to strengthen its presence and proactively expand business in the strategically important Brazilian market.
