Southeast Asia has always been at the heart of international business for many Japanese companies, and it becomes even more important for them to respond flexibly and rapidly to the massive transformation such as “digitalization” and “green growth” in the region.
“ASEAN-Japan Business Week”, a brand-new online event hosted by multiple organizations from ASEAN and Japan, is designed to give you an opportunity to get better understanding of the latest trends around ASEAN business and its potential in the future. The keywords of this event are "Innovation" and "Sustainability", which are in alignment with “Dialogue for Innovative and Sustainable Growth (DISG)*”, launched last year with endorsement by Economic Ministers from ASEAN and Japan.
During the Business Week, executives of leading companies will talk about their vision and initiatives with concrete examples, and a wide range of experts from various fields will discuss how to accelerate and expand their initiatives.
