Japan Task Force

GlobalPlatform established a Japan Task Force in 2011 to serve as a forum for its Japanese members to gather and discuss business and functional requirements for specific market sectors within the region. The task force hosts twelve regular meetings a year, where its 14 member companies come together to progress the key aims of the group.
