Connect is a dedicated digital marketplace offering SMEs, entrepreneurs, independent businesses and other local companies in Japan much-needed free visibility and valuable promotion to audiences that they may not have been able to connect with previously to help all of us get through this uncharted economy.

Following Robert, and I hope he can stick around too for Q&A, I'll introduce two of the SME's doing Business here in Japan and who have joined 'Connect' to tell us a little bit about their businesses, about how they are being impacted by and their thoughts on the current global turmoil from the COVID-19 pandemic, what they are offering on the 'Connect' platform, how they can help the Japan Business community, and how we can help them.
