Increase the amount of communication between foreigners and Japanese with the power of vision technology

Scene.01 Is Japan the most closed country in the world?

December 1995. The representative, Oguchi, enjoyed the cool summer vacation on the island near the South Pole while teaching Japanese to the locals on Tasmania, Australia. Emily (a pseudonym) who had lived in Tokyo was also one of the applicants for the newspaper advertisement "I will teach you Japanese". A weekly lesson was started to improve her Japanese, "I want to save money and go to Japan again" because I am obsessed with the charm of Japan. For Emily from Tasmania, life in Tokyo seemed exciting and liked, but she didn't feel accepted by Japanese society. It seems that I often felt alienated in Japan, and whenever I drank beer, I repeatedly said, "Japan is the most closed country in the world."

Supplement: Japan has a unique cultural background. Ingenuity is required to connect smoothly with overseas

Now I can understand what Emily was saying. Japanese people have a habit of treating foreigners specially, which makes them feel that they cannot be included in the Japanese group. In addition, the existence of a place based on nonverbal communication peculiar to Japan also contributes to the difficulty of foreigners entering the Japanese community. If you turn over the appearance of foreigners who cannot blend in with Japan, it will lead to the appearance of business people who are solidified with Japanese people overseas without interacting with foreigners.

BuyChemJapan Initiatives: Increase Dialogue with Overseas with the Power of Technology

Surrounded by the sea, many Japanese are not accustomed to communicating with foreigners. Although Japan's geographical situation cannot be changed, BuyChemJapan leverages the power of modern technology to provide a mechanism for daily communication with overseas business partners.

Mission Deepen mutual understanding between the world and Japan and shorten the distance

Scene.02 We were able to understand the background and perspective by talking about each other's feelings.

At night, I often talked to my flatmate Bruce (a pseudonym) while watching a cricket match with a beer. Bruce was a typical Australian who was lovable and always joking, but one day he drank a little too much and talked about his thoughts on the Japanese air raid on Darwin during World War II. Having been told many times about my grandmother, who lost her home twice in an air raid by the U.S. military, I heard his thoughts on the same war and realized that history is not one. .. With beer as a catalyst on this day, Bruce and I surely understood each other, and I felt that the distance between them became closer.

Supplement: The distance between Tokyo and Osaka has become closer due to active exchanges.

400 years ago, Tokyo and Osaka also fought a war. After that, peaceful times continued, and the exchange of people, goods, money, information, viewpoints, etc. in the two cities increased, and the distance between Tokyo and Osaka became closer, creating a sense of unity. In the future, Tokyo and Osaka will not fight again.

BuyChemJapan Initiatives: Increase exchanges between overseas and Japan and shorten the distance

Increase exchanges between overseas and Japan and shorten the distance

As in Tokyo and Osaka, the distance between countries around the world will shrink in the future. BuyChemJapan's mission is to accelerate the speed at which the world shrinks by increasing international communication and never turn back.

Direct communication price is also open

Scene.03 Working with people around the world expanded my horizons

After returning from Australia, I was able to get a sales job at a chemical trading company that connects Japanese manufacturers and overseas buyers. It's a very exciting and entertaining job that buyers all over the world rely on and made friends all over the world. When money is involved, it becomes easier for people to show their true nature, and when talking about business, it is easy to understand what buyers are thinking. I was able to get a deeper understanding of the values and ways of thinking of each country.

Supplement: Understand user needs through direct communication

Many Japanese are not accustomed to direct communication with foreigners, so the job of mediating with foreign countries has existed for a long time. Especially in the chemical industry, it was common to appoint a trading company for overseas business. However, in order for Japanese manufacturers to improve their overall competitiveness in the future, it will be necessary to communicate directly with overseas end users on a daily basis and accelerate the PDCA cycle of marketing strategies.

BuyChemJapan Initiatives: Concentrate Manufacturers' Management Resources on Core Operations

Despite the benefits of direct dialogue between users and manufacturers, the reason why many business communications are conducted via trading companies is to outsource non-core operations such as international logistics and credit management of overseas buyers to trading companies. BuyChemJpan provides services such as logistics and settlement as before, while providing highly transparent services in which the manufacturer directly conducts dialogue with users, which is the core business.

Fostering global human resources Cross-cultural ability and strategic thinking ability

Scene.04 Japan's competitiveness and current situation in the good old days

In the past, even immature young people could do business thanks to the product power of the manufacturer if they had a little charm, so I went to more than 30 countries on business trips. However, when I go abroad recently, I feel that Japan's presence is gradually declining. Some chemicals, whose Japanese products were the mainstream in the Asian market decades ago, are now being replaced by Chinese products. In addition, the shadow of labor shortages has creeped up at Japanese manufacturing sites.

Supplement: Increase the competitiveness of parts other than manufacturing

Japan has traditionally had a reputation for productivity at manufacturing sites, and once dominated the world market with its overwhelming product power. It was an era when "If you make good things, you can sell them." However, the era in which "only Japan can make good products" is coming to an end, following the follow-up of manufacturers in other countries. From now on, we will take advantage of the growth potential of white-collar workers, which are said to be relatively low in productivity, and compete in a comprehensive strategy that includes not only manufacturing but also marketing.

BuyChemJapan Initiatives: Communicating with overseas customers on a daily basis

By directly facing user issues on a daily basis with BuyChem Japan's online platform, we will develop global human resources who can objectively grasp that they are Japanese manufacturers and can respond to different cultures and think strategically.
