Public Procurement

The Japan Tax & Public Procurement (JTPP) Helpdesk has been transferred to the EU-Japan website. See the following links.

Government – or Public – Procurement is another way of entering the Japanese market.  With an estimated 550 billion euros, Japanese public procurement - supplying goods and services to government organisations – largely remains an untapped market for European companies, in particular SMEs, despite of the fact that the Japanese government provides different types of tendering that may be interesting to European companies.  But access to the public market has remained quite difficult for foreign companies.

The Japan Tax & Public Procurement (JTPP) Helpdesk provides a range of services in the area of public procurement to lessen the hurdles that might impede European companies from entering this market.
