In 2017, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) and Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and organizations concerned decided to designate July 24 as Telework Day and have been promoting a nationwide telework campaign since then with the participation of companies. The campaign for this annual initiative will continue until July 24, 2020, on which the opening of the Tokyo Olympic Games is scheduled. Approximately 950 organizations with 63 thousand people participated in the campaign on July 24, 2017, which was the first big step of this national campaign.
