Osaka has prospered as a gateway from other countries with foreign trades and diplomatic relations since ancient times. With the opportunity to hold global events, the city wants to contribute to developing its progress towards building a smart city. The city is trying to tackle a range of social issues, such as challenges associated with changes in demographic structure (declining birthrate/working-age population and increasing aging population), revitalization of urban infrastructure. Severe weather events are also becoming more apparent, further compounding problems.
This concept aims to address these urban issues. Osaka’s first program will focus on areas such as smart life and construction, travel and experiences, public information, urban mobility, cleantech, hospitality, and health.
Key Activities: Tourist guides, public information, guides for entrepreneurs
