Commenting on the agreement, Suzuki’s President, Toshihiro Suzuki, said, “I’m very excited to be working together with SkyDrive. We will make ambitious strides toward the development of products of superior value so that we can contribute to the realization of air mobility, which utilizes the sky for daily transportation.”
