Global Management: The Key to Revival of Corporate Japan

There is widespread concern that Japanese companies are losing their competitive edge. However, just as the power of the corporate sector drove Japan’s once rapid growth, improving the international competitiveness of Japanese companies is essential for the economy to achieve stable growth over the long term. And the key to boosting international competitiveness is true globalization. In this session, we will discuss the conditions needed for Japanese companies to once again make rapid progress in the world, and we will consider what Japan will look like in 50 years' time.
