In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, on February 26, prime minister Shinzo Abe called for large scale sports and cultural events be postponed or cancelled for a two-week period.
“Although JIAM 2020 Osaka does not fall within the Prime Minister’s restrictions, we have nonetheless come to a difficult decision to postpone the show after serious discussions among the committee. As the prospects to curtail the new coronavirus are uncertain, we have prioritised the health and safety of our participants,” said Shigemi Mima, chairman of the JIAM 2020 executive committee.
