Congratulations on your fantastic and very informative article "Click Kansai for E-Commerce." Having previously worked for the Osaka office of the German Chamber of Commerce in Japan, and the German Consulate in Osaka, I have to say this article really tells it from my heart. Everybody who has been preoccupied with the situation of the Kansai area must feel this way. You should direct mail this article to every foreign institution dealing with external trade promotion in Japan, and they should feature the most important parts in their newsletters/reports/publications.
