Tokyo, September 13, 2019 – The Japan Times, Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. Representative: Takeharu Tsutsumi) will participate as a media partner at the G1 Global Conference 2019, to be held on Sept. 16, 2019, in Tokyo.

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 actions.

This year’s theme is “Sustainable Innovation in Times of Disruption.” Social fractures that emerged with Brexit and US President Trump are deepening and expanding globally, with populism being one of many factors disrupting the post-WWII international order. Meanwhile, Industry 4.0 technologies such as AI, Big Data, and IoT are transforming politics, business, and society.

At the 9th G1 Global Conference, we will discuss these disruptions in politics, business, and technology, and society by bringing together the wisdom from various sectors and regions from around the globe.
