Doing Business in Japan

DOING Business in japan 

To find out about the business opportunities in Japan join us for an informative and engaging seminar with guest speakers from NZTE, Japan NZ Business Council, North Asia CAPE, MFAT, Japan External Trade Organisation, NZ Customs and ExportNZ.  Speakers will highlight and discuss market potential in Japan, consumer perceptions, investment, customs, CPTPP and point you in the right direction to get things started.

If you’re looking to learn from someone who’s been there and successfully doing it  - also presenting will be a company active in the Japanese market, sharing their own experiences of doing business in this dynamic economy.

Japan themed refreshments and catering will be served during morning tea where you will get the chance to network and talk one-on-one with the experts.

This is an incredible opportunity to connect with other New Zealand businesses operating in Japan and the various important government agencies to gain a better understanding of the opportunities in Japan and what you need to know to be successful.
