The Japanese IT Strategy (that started in January 2001) has been recently modified and it is at a new stage. In the last five years it has gone through three steps. The first one was in 2001: IT staggered behind in Japan compared to the world. There was a need to have proper infrastructure. From 2001 to 2002, the government successfully worked on the infrastructure. In 2003, the second step was the e-Strategy called e-Japan. The aim was to make good use of IT. Six major fields were selected in order to apply the IT strategy. In order to accelerate e-Japan a promotion package was established in 2005. After five years, new targets have been set: 1. how can IT be used for structural reforms? 2. How to be a frontrunner, to initiate the global IT revolution?
