About This Website

The EUBusinessinJapan website is an initiative financed by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW).

It provides PRACTICAL INFORMATION for European Union businesses in need of clear guidelines to trade with or invest in Japan, or cooperate with Japanese partners, such as:

  • sectoral information (market surveys);
  • cross-cutting issues (such as corporate tax and IPR, etc); and
  • business culture.

"EU BUSINESS IN JAPAN" seeks to be THE WEBSITE OF CHOICE for all EU companies wishing to develop business relations in Japan.

It is managed by the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation, a joint venture between the European Commission's Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW) and the Japanese Government's Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry (METI).

The information used in this website was obtained by screening over 1,600 webpages to provide European Union companies with a digest of useful Japan-related information from a wide variety of online sources. Consequently the views expressed in these sources do not necessarily reflect the views of the Centre nor of any of its associate organisations.

The European Office of the EU-Japan Centre alone is responsible for the information contained in its communications or publication. Neither the European Commission nor the Government of Japan is responsible for any for any use that may be made of the information contained therein.

Neither the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation nor any person acting on its behalf is responsible for any consequences which may arise from third-party use, whether by individuals or organisations, of the organisations’ support services.
