Leaders&Readers

We aim to increase the network of Leaders & Readers through interviews with key people at top international companies and with ambassadors to Japan.
We seek to promote mutual understanding, exchanges and commercial connections between Japan and the rest of the world by appreciating the outlooks of people outside such careers.
