The New Economy Summit is a global conference organized by the Japan Association of New Economy. Since it was first held in 2013, the annual summit has brought together global entrepreneurs and innovators at the forefront of the new economy and industry to discuss and anticipate future trends.
Japan needs to develop new industries with a special focus on the greater strategic utilization of information technology. It is a crucial step for Japan to regain global competitiveness and continue its economic growth into the future in the face of such structural problems as a shrinking and aging population. The establishment of policies and systems to support this development is an urgent issue for the country.
The Japan Association of New Economy (JANE) is dedicated to performing policy advocacy from a private sector perspective to help contribute to addressing this issue, while also providing a platform for information sharing and networking among members.
To that end, JANE works to achieve the triple objectives of promoting innovation, globalization and entrepreneurship. As an organization with a responsibility towards the socioeconomic future of Japan, JANE, with its member companies pioneering tomorrow’s technologies and services, continues to challenge the status quo and advocates a vision of the future beyond conventional thinking.
These missions are expressed in the slogan “Hello, Future!” whose spirit is also embodied by the New Economy Summit (NEST).
