Communication–The Main Theme of the 21st Century
The Japanese are said to be skilled at wordlessly adapting to the ideas from the other side while unskilled at expressing their own opinions. Japanese are often proud of all they can convey without words; but this, of course, has its limits and will not always work. Japanese products have won the trust of the world. There has never been a time when Japan has been as poised to make itself heard in the global stage as there is today. And yet the world waits for the Japanese to speak. Diplomatt is here to help Japan find not only its ears but its voice. For our globe is an increasingly interdependent one. We wish to help it communicate.
