Nikkei BP Unveils New Digital Magazine Nikkei Global Gate on September 18!

Tokyo - September 18, 2015 – Nikkei Business Publications (President & CEO: Kohei Osada; Tokyo) today unveils Nikkei Global Gate (Price: JPY400), a new digital magazine optimized for smartphones to deliver inspiring stories for globally-minded individuals.

Is it really a big deal to work in other parts of the world?

Over these recent years, Japanese youth are said to be losing interest in going abroad. Looking into the facts, however, there are actually many young people leaving Japan for other countries to make a breakthrough. Those who stand out globally share one thing in common—being free from the conventional Japanese way. Their “out-of-the-box” attitude is irresistibly attractive. Through interviews with internationally-renowned Japanese individuals and young people who left Japan for overseas in a “nonconformist way”, Nikkei Global Gate discovers clues hidden in their words for achieving success in overseas. Each story is filled with essential information and knowledge to survive in the global arena as well as know-how to have a confidence in using English.
