“The launch of Forbes Japan comes at a critical time in Japan,” said Makoto Takano, editor-in-chief of Forbes Japan and CEO of Atomixmedia, in a statement. “The economy is emerging from decades of deflation and regaining confidence. It is getting ready to resume its vital role as a key driver of the global economy. With Forbes being the world’s leading global business brand, and our knowledge of the Japanese market, Forbes Japan will be a great success.”

Forbes Japan is the latest of its brands in the Asia Pacific region. Forbes Media also publishes Forbes Asia, Forbes China, Forbes Korea, Forbes India, Forbes Indonesia, Forbes Thailand and Forbes Vietnam.
