Introduction of the diverse business potential of Japan's regions
At this event, speakers from Fukuoka, Ibaraki, Osaka, Saitama, and Gunma will introduce their prefectures (= Japanese Bundesländer) and provide insights into the business environment and opportunities in their respective regions. Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the benefits of doing business in different parts of Japan, connect with representatives, and discover potential partners, resources, and incentives.
The event will be accompanied by an introduction into the topic by AHK Japan as well as an input by LSI Bochum, a Germany-based intensive language training facility. A Q&A session will be held after the pitches.
