About Japan Webinar 01: Presentation of the Project

03-12-13 | 10:30 h Brussels time

How to get easy access to key information on Japan?

When you receive a request from one of your SME members seeking support to develop its activity in Japan, a difficult process will start for you of trying to provide adequate service to this “client”. Unless you are a big organisation that has a designated Japan desk with dedicated staff with the requested expertise who will have the time to help this client,  it will be an uphill struggle for you to provide relevant information or support, knowing that most of your SMEs won’t have the financial capacities to hire a private expert.

Knowing this, the EU-Japan Centre is trying to put in place a platform enabling visitors to get access to all kinds of business information on Japan.
All the information that will be made available (for free) is coming either from already existing webpages or from selected experts who agreed to share their knowledge through reports, e-learning sessions and webinars.

The webinar is targeted to Enterprise Europe Network Partners aiming at supporting EU companies in their internationalisation process.

  • Organise webinars with your “clients” that are interested in learning more “about Japan” with the support of the Centre and the experts.
