The Growth and Future of E-Commerce and the Online Marketplace in Japan

CCCJ is happy to co-host a guest speaker event with American Chamber of Commerce.

Event Overview
Increasing demand for e-commerce plays an important role in the Japanese economy, and service-oriented e-commerce alone accounts for $46 billion in revenue and the fastest growth rate at 11.3% per annum.

In this talk, Groupon Japan Country Manager Yasushi Okue will provide an exclusive look at the growth and future of the e-commerce online marketplace in Japan, and how organizations are adapting to evolving purchasing preferences while building customer loyalty and trust.

Topics to be covered include:

- The current e-commerce landscape (e.g. consumer lifestyle service sector)
- Unique market characteristics that support continued e-commerce growth
- The future of the e-commerce service sector, including challenges and opportunities
- Groupon’s rise in global/local strategic growth from the view of a US business operating in Japan

About the Speaker
Yasushi Okue is Country Manager at Groupon Japan, the Japanese subsidiary of Groupon’s worldwide e-commerce marketplace, which is now available in more than 15 countries. Okue is responsible for leading the organization’s revenue-generation operations and has been bridging the gap between the Japanese consumer market and businesses that sprung out of US-based IT technologies for the past 10 years. He has worked for companies such as Amazon, Twitter, and AOL (now Oath Inc.) in various executive roles.
