Invest Tokyo Seminar Winter 2017

<Invest Tokyo Seminar Winter 2017>

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government will be holding “Invest Tokyo Seminar Winter 2017” on January 25, 2017. In order to realize the new vision for Tokyo—a “smart city” open to the world that leads in the environment and finances—we are employing the Special Zone system to further enhance Tokyo’s business environment, with the aim to make Tokyo an international business city open to the world. At this seminar, we will introduce the measures we have in place to encourage companies to set up business in Tokyo, and will also have foreign affiliates speak about what they feel is the attraction of Tokyo’s special economic zone. Successful cases of business match-ups between foreign affiliates and Tokyo’s SMEs will also be introduced. Business matching and talks between foreign affiliates and companies in Tokyo will be conducted in Part II of the seminar.
