Promotion of “Japan as Health and Longevity” to increase Health Awareness

The population of the Philippines has exceeded one hundred million in 2014. 63 percent of the population is composed of the working-ages (15 to 64) and thus, has a great potential to have an economic growth over the years. Meanwhile, percentages of obesity in the population have risen sharply due to changes in main diet accompanied by economic growth.

Government has started focusing on this situation to prevent diabetes and obesity, taking measures such as having tax on softdrinks containing sugar to restrain citizens from consuming sugar in 2018.

The research JETRO carried out targeting Filipinos aged from 20 to 50 has shown that, disregarding age, almost 90 percent answered that they are caring about their health, meaning that a majority of the people has been tackling health problems by activities and dietary restrictions.

JETRO is aiming for this exhibit to have a stable image of “Japan as a country of Health and Longevity” and to expand as a sales channel by introducing services and commodities supporting Japanese health in large shopping malls where local middle-high income earners visit. The target is from young to middle aged citizens that are large in number and are expected to rise in demand of health promotion.
