4.Future developments

 

Singapore population is a small country with 5,837,325 citizens; however, it functions as a gateway to South Asia in 10 countries of 647.39 million ASEAN member countries. In order to cover this rapidly growing South Asian countries, Singapore market cannot be ignored. It is very important for Nippon Platform to have acquired the contract of NETS Pay which is indispensable for Singaporean daily life. First, start from attracting tourism in Hokkaido by promoting the use of NETS Pay in Japan, we will increase tourism expenditure of Singaporean tourists in Japan. This leads revitalization of Japanese local areas and shopping districts centering on small and medium-sized personal shops in Japan. Second, we support Japanese companies to enter Singapore and cashless settlement locally, for leading economic development in both Japan and Singapore.
