According to FreshTrax, one of the largest and most mature e-commerce markets in the world is Japan. It comprises 10% of global online retail transactions. In 2013, Japanese B2C e-commerce sales totalled $119 billion, and have since been growing steadily at 10% annually. The figure is projected to reach $135 billion in 2015.

And we decided to bring it on; to gather all the experts from Japan and Malaysia to share on how Japanese culture and trends affect the E-commerce scene in Malaysia. The latest E-commerce trends and landscape in Japan were also thoroughly examined and discussed at the much anticipated JTD 2015.

At 8.30am, registration was open.
