The Covid-19 pandemic that is sweeping the entire world has drastically changed the international situation for consumers. With a view to contributing to a sustainable society while recognizing the ongoing social changes, the Tokushima International Consumer’s Forum 2020 will invite the world’s leaders and Japanese experts in ethical consumption to share their progressive views, and present the efforts of some Japanese companies, groups and local governments towards consumer-oriented management and ethical consumption to help the achievement of the SDGs.

Held as a new style of international forum in the Covid-19 era, this forum will be made available for on-demand viewing at any time. We hope that the forum will lead to the development of a new consumer policy and bring fruitful results to consumers around the world.
