CICC TOKYO DAYORI vol.67
[Topic ]

It is less than one year to go until the Olympic and Paralympic
Games Tokyo 2020.

During Tokyo 2020, it is estimated that more than 10 million people
including athletes, staff of the games, spectators and tourists will
visit Tokyo from all over the world, and that traffic congestion will
be heavier than usual in roads and railways around Tokyo.

To make Tokyo 2020 successful, it is very important to balance smooth
transportation and uninterrupted economic activities. Then, the Tokyo
Metropolitan Government, National Governments and Tokyo 2020
Organizing Committee have carried out the “2020 Transportation
Demand Management (TDM) Promotion Project” since August
2018. 

Dubbed as“Smooth Biz”, trials of TDM, time-lag commuting hours
and telework or working distant from the usual office such as at
home,
satellite office and cafe, are being promoted by the Tokyo
Metropolitan Government, utilizing ICT from 22 July to 6 September,
2019. There are more than 2,000 companies and organizations
participating and cooperating in it.

Not only for the countermeasure of Tokyo 2020, but we also expect TDM
and telework to make an impact on new way of transportation and
flexible work style after that.

It is said that telework is effective in developing business
continuity plan in case of emergency, reducing commuting time, saving
energy in office, preventing employee turnover and improving
productivity. While there seem to be disadvantages of difficulties of
personnel administration and undermined cooperative relationship, I
think it is good to have more options of work style.

When you watch Olympic and Paralympic Games next year, please give an
eye to find whether we can make it successfully.

In Japan, the employment situation is steadily improving along with
gradual recovery of the economy. On the other hand, the sense of labor
shortages of Japanese companies is gradually increasing.

Title: Support status of accepting interns from Myanmar IT related
universities

According to the survey results released by the Ministry of Economy,
Trade and Industry(METI) in June 2016, the supply of IT human
resources in Japan were about 919 thousand people and about 171
thousand people were short. In addition, the supply will turn to
decrease with peak of 2020, and it is maintained at about 923 thousand
in 2020, but METI estimate that about 369 thousand will be short.
Moreover, the supply will be reduced to about 857 thousand in 2030,
and it is estimated that about 789 thousand will be short.
In particular, the demand for both information security fields and new
technology fields including AI, IoT, big data etc. is very high, and
the shortage of IT human resources in those fields may become serious.

We often hear the word "safety(Anzen in Japanese) and security
(Anshin in Japanese)” recently.

However, it is said that it has been some time since the breakdown of the
myth that “Japan is a country where we can live in safety and security”.
Events including disasters, crimes, food safety problems, medical mistakes etc.
that threaten our safety and security are increasing.

The Japanese Government announced “The New Tourism Nation Promotion

Japan from other countries will increase to 18 million by 2016”, aiming
at the long-term target of an increase to 25 million by the beginning of 2020.
