The Role of Technology and Innovative Business Models for Creating a Globalized and Sustainable Economy
We are pleased to announce that Uber will be sponsoring the simultaneous interpretation for this event.
This event is held in collaboration with the Sharing Economy Association, Uber, U.S. Embassy and U.S. Japan Council (USJC).
Prime Minister Abe’s administration has been dedicated to revitalizing the Japanese economy through his policy called “Abenomics”. Abenomics’ primary focus on monetary, fiscal and structural reform measures are expected to yield results that “boost productivity,” “drive innovation and trade” and “stimulate corporate activities.” Work style reform and women empowerment also underline his key concept for economic growth. Furthermore, new industries focusing on the “sharing economy” are seen as one of the key components that could help further Abenomics and contribute to his overall Growth Strategy. However, since the “sharing economy” is at its early stage of development, there are only a handful of people who understand its true impact and importance to the overall economy. As one of the leading countries promoting the idea of the “sharing economy” and contributing to its innovation, U.S. based companies now have the opportunity to share their experiences and best practices that might help shape the sharing economy in Japan for years to come. How Japan embraces the “sharing economy” may also hold the key to unlocking future growth and prosperity for the next generation.
