Messages from the Co-Chairmen
Shuhei Ueda ( Co-Chairman )
Thanks to your support, we were able to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the founding of JOGA. At the time of establishment, our group was initially comprised of 13 venture businesses, but now, we have been joined by over 70 companies. Over the last 10 years, all the while responding to changes in business models and platforms, the online game industry has grown into a massive industry that now totals more than a trillion JPY. In the future, we intend to fulfill our mission as an industry group in order to be true to society and develop into a healthy and attractive industry.
Masato Ochi ( Co-Chairman )
The online game market has been dramatically expanding accompanying the proliferation of smartphones, and amidst this, JOGA has been working since 2007 with the goal of healthy growth for the industry. In the future, the business field will develop globally, and predictions are that we will require the ability to compete with overseas companies. JOGA will continue to provide support so that the Japanese online game industry may grow into one that we can be proud of globally.
