In the latter half of the second part, we discuss how the field of geoeconomic challenges is a power game in which the leading U.S. and Chinese companies, so called GAFA and BATH, are competing with each other. We will discuss what role Japan can play and how it can take responsibility in cyberspace to contribute to its security, including how it can lead the charge in distribution of secure data. In addition, we ask what is required of Japan for the development of a free and open cyber space, and how industry, government and academia should work towards this goal.
