1. Details of the Corporate Reporting Lab

In July 2012, METI launched the Lab to provide both companies’ managers and investors a common platform to discuss, study, and propose ways of corporate communication and disclosure that may enhance companies’ values. Participating members made individual efforts to advance the Lab’s activities, including proposing and undertaking various projects.

The Lab intends to achieve the following two major goals:
  1. Bring enterprises and investors together to exchange views, identify differences in perceptions, and seek common ground and establish terminology so as to facilitate more constructive dialogue; and
  2. Establish a communications hub and a network with a variety of domestic and foreign stakeholders, including, inter alia, overseas investors interested in the Japanese market, and communicate Japan’s message overseas through the network.
