Fast Retailing Company, the parent company (親会社) of popular clothing store chain Uniqlo is also going to make English its official language. Furthermore, all business meetings at Nissan are held in English.
European companies, including the German companies BMW and Siemans do business in English. The largest English speaking country in the world is China. Over 300 million people in China speak English! That's three times the entire population of Japan!
Little by little Japanese will have real motivation to learn English.
