Daiho Corporation completed the construction of the port of Ehoala in July 2009 as a base for QMM titanium ore mining and shipping near Fort Dauphin in the southeastern part of the Republic of Madagascar. And recently, the banknotes of the Republic of Madagascar have been renewed, and the scenery of the port of Ehoala has been adopted as the design of the new banknotes.

The port of Ehoala was used for the design of the 10,000 Ariari banknotes issued in July 2017.

Our company have worked on a number of construction projects in Madagascar, including the construction of the Namorona Hydro-Electric Power Station in 1978, and have contributed to the stability of the country's social infrastructure for over 40 years. In addition, we have established the Daiho-Uchida Foundation to develop young human resources in Madagascar and provide scholarships to students studying civil engineering and architecture.

As above, it is a great honor for us that, in the country which is related to our company, the Port of Ehoala constructed by our company was used for the design of banknotes that reflects symbols of the country such as the culture or the history.
