Fujitsu participates in government and industry group councils, committees and forums, and promotes activities relating to the investigation of concrete proposals and measures to resolve social issues, as well as the creation and revision of legal systems and promotion of international collaboration.
In FY 2012, Fujitsu worked with about 1,250 partners such as industry groups, research organizations, and NGOs on activities including the following.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) on East Asia, held in May 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand, saw some 700 participants from more than 40 countries, regions, international organizations, etc.
Co-chairing the forum, the President of Fujitsu talked about the Great East Japan Earthquake and flood in Thailand, and also touched on how simulations using supercomputers are an effective tool in enhancing flexibility in handling global risk, including that in supply chains, and deepened cooperative ties internationally regarding natural disasters.
While Japan compares favorably internationally when it comes to infrastructure deployment and usage of ICT in the private sector, the government's sluggishness in adopting ICT is a major issue.
As the joint committee chair of the Committee on e-Government of the Keidanren, Fujitsu Chairman Mazuka is continuously encouraging the construction of a base for e-Government to bring more convenience to citizens' lives and streamline government and make it more transparent. He is also engaged in getting laws in place for enhancing command-giving functionality within the government. In December 2012, he made a strong appeal as to the importance of e-Government from the point of view of its citizens at a Keidanren symposium attended by many members of government and industry.
