Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Japan

Part of the World Economic Forum's expanding global network, the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Japan co-designs, pilots, tests and iterates innovative policy frameworks with the Japanese government, global business leaders, international organizations, and civil society.

The Japan Centre was the first to be launched outside the United States. Founded in July 2018 as a collaboration among the World Economic Forum, the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Asia Pacific Initiative, this unique joint venture works closely with policy-makers to address governance issues that involve important regulatory reforms.
