Summit Meeting

June 28 to 29, 2019

Flourishing from Ancient Times as Japan’s Center of Commerce and Trade

 Osaka has been a major city of commerce and trade since olden times. Today it is served by three different airports, including Kansai International Airport, with round-the-clock arrivals and departures, and has become an international city visited by over ten million foreign visitors every year. Osaka is brimming with so many manufacturing companies that people say there is nothing that it cannot make.

As the host city of EXPO 2025 OSAKA, KANSAI, JAPAN, Osaka continues to transform to become a truly international city.

 Together with other nations, Japan now faces the issue of a superaging society. Osaka is promoting endeavors that incorporate cuttingedge technologies to develop a society in which all people can live healthy and happy lives, with the plan to showcase its achievements to the world by hosting EXPO 2025 OSAKA, KANSAI, JAPAN, with the theme of “Designing Future Society for Our Lives.”

 Both the prefecture and the city have collaborated to enhance the functionality of Osaka’s urban infrastructure to provide the ideal environment for welcoming the visiting G20 heads of state. Osaka is taking every precaution for the safety of the top-level global summit and the 30,000 people who will come for it. Mustering the combined strength of both the public and private sectors, Osaka is doing all it can to bring about a successful G20 Summit.
