Starting this week, On Japan is accompanied by a partnership between CNN International Commercial (CNNIC) and the Japanese global chemical company, Asahi Kasei. This international campaign is the latest partnership between CNNIC and Asahi Kasei, and spans sponsorship of the five ‘On Japan’ TV segments, a special 30-minute program as well as digital elements. In addition, the multi-platform campaign includes native ad integration on CNN Digital which includes storytelling around Asahi Kasei’s automotive business.

The native solution was produced by Create, CNNIC’s branded content studio. Using CNN AIM (Audience Insight Measurement), the campaign is targeted to increase Asahi Kasei’s brand awareness amongst CNN’s upscale cosmopolitan audience of business decision makers, top managers and a curious, technically interested On Japan audience – specifically audiences in Europe, North America and Asia.
