In recent years, Japan has gained a lot of attention in the world's political and economic landscape. There is a well-known fastener trade dealer in Osaka rapidly in the making of an all-English purchase platform, aiming at the global market and vowing to send Japanese high-quality products and logistics services to all corners of the world. Fastener World is closely monitoring the situation in Japan and set up a booth at the show to distribute magazines and introduce global fastener companies to Japanese visitors.
According to the Fastener World exhibitor. There were about 70 Chinese exhibitors of screws and 30 Taiwanese fastener exhibitors in the show. Some of them solely target their overseas sales at the Japanese market and had visited Japanese clients before the show. On another note, visitors to the Fastener World booth were mainly looking for suppliers of screws and motorcycle parts.
There were up to six AI-related speeches in the conferences organized by the show, which mainly explored how to apply AI to the manufacturing industry. Another major topic was carbon neutrality, with one of the speech title "Explanation of the decarbonization management strategy— Key points of CO2 visualization and Carbon Footprint calculation of the entire supply chain in the manufacturing industry ". From here we see Japan’s high interest in carbon tax as the future trend. Representative of Toyota Motor Corporation of Japan was also invited to give a presentation on the world-renowned Toyota Production System (TPS). These speeches offer a glimpse into the future of Japan's manufacturing industry.
