Ontario remains committed to creating opportunities for our business community to help them remain strong and get back up and running during these unprecedented times. As a part of this commitment, the Government of Ontario is offering a series of free webinars to help reboot your export business.

The webinar series on cross-border eCommerce is designed to provide information on different country and specific e-marketplaces, enabling services, and risks, to assist Ontario companies to make informed decisions and formulate market entry approach.

Thanks to its advanced IT and infrastructure network, large and wealthy consumer base, and high urban density, Japan has the second largest e-commerce market in the Asia Pacific region and the fourth largest market in the world.

Rakuten is a leading global company that contributes to society by creating value through innovation and entrepreneurship. Launched in 1997 with a vision to empower Japanese merchants to sell online, Rakuten Ichiba has grown into one of the world’s largest e-commerce platforms with more than 100 million members and $37 billion in domestic ecommerce transaction volume. Through various international acquisitions and joint ventures, Rakuten currently provides over 70 services spanning e-commerce, digital media, fintech, and communications to over one billion members worldwide.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction of Rakuten, why you should & how you can list with Rakuten
  • Case Study by a Rakuten client/supplier
  • Risks and challenges you need to be aware before entering the market
  • Q&A

As a follow up to the webinar we will organize B2B meetings between selected Ontario companies and the e-marketplace, enabler and other service providers. Companies will be invited to submit their interest on this after the webinar.

Ontario continues to support our companies by delivering revamped export programs that will help connect suppliers, educate our partners, and build our economy.
