In conjunction with the hosting of the G20 Osaka Summit, the Government Exhibition Space was set up in the International Media Center (IMC) in INTEX Osaka. Exhibits spotlighting the attractions and charms of Japan will be open for viewing from 8am on June 27 (Thursday).

Innovation possesses the capacity to resolve a wide range of issues that have a major impact on the world economy. Japan will become the first nation in the world to prove and demonstrate that innovation can maintain growth despite a declining population. At the same time, innovation will also be essential in solving global-scale environmental issues in order to allow the realization of sustainable growth. In this Japan Innovation Lounge, we introduce revolutionary Japanese technologies and ideas that will help to create a new era which realizes a virtuous cycle of environmental preservation and growth, and which will be richly beneficial both to humans and to the planet.

The expansive Exhibition Space introduces Japanese technology and products related to each category representing the Summit agenda.In addition to the exhibits complementing the G20 agenda-“Society × Innovation, “Health × Innovation,” “Marine Plastic Litter × Innovation,” “Energy × Innovation,” and “Development Cooperation × Innovation” -the space includes categories featuring “Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” “Recovery from March 11th, 2011,” “Japan Tourism,” and “Tradition.” The total of some 50 displays offer entertaining education in an array of formats, from panels and models to videos and hands-on presentations.
