G1 Global Conference 2017

Launched in 2011, the G1 Global Conference addresses global and regional challenges through discussions conducted in English. The G1 Global provides a unique opportunity for global leaders to interact, share visions for the future, and develop ideas into concrete action.

The theme for this year is “Connecting a Fractured World.” As President Donald Trump pursues an America First policy, various partnerships are being challenged. Japan and other allies are carefully balancing their interests with the United States while building relationships with other countries. At the same time, new technological innovations in AI, IoT, and blockchain are shaking the concepts of reliability, productivity, and privacy. The 8th G1 Global Conference will bring together the wisdom of various sectors from around the globe to create new connections in politics, business, society, and technology for this fractured world.

◆ About G1
G1 is a forum for the leaders of the next generation to gather, discuss, and paint a vision for the rebirth of Japan in a turbulent world. The name is derived from aspirations that the globe will become as one, that we can become No. 1 if we have a global mindset, and that our generation will unite as one.

G1 believes that Japan and the world need leadership that is backed by wisdom, well-rounded knowledge, ambition, and a network of close associates.

The purpose of G1 is to gather leaders and create a network.
