The Japanese IT industry is a key driver of global economic growth. Although Japan has lost its once-dominant position in the global IT industry and is facing increasing competition from foreign firms, Japanese companies still have a significant global presence and respected reputation. Efforts are being made by Japanese IT giants and by the government to make the necessary reforms to Japan’s IT sector in order to restore it to its former glory.
