Jetro Economic Seminar in Finland, Nov. 20,2019
During the Compamed, the Chief Representative travelled to Finland to attend the Jetro Business Seminar in Helsinki for the second consecutive year. He introduced Yokohama as a business location in a presentation, appeared as a panelist in the panel discussion and exhibited a Yokohama booth during the networking session. About 80 representatives from Finnish and Japanese companies attended the seminar.
In his presentation, the Chief Representative presented the reasons why many companies going to Japan choose Yokohama as their location and introduced the LIP and ITOP networks. In the panel discussion he had the opportunity to present the successes of the Smart City project, the Smart Business Association (YSBA) and the progress of the cooperation between city and citizens to achieve the zero-emission goal.
Jetro Economic Seminar in Düsseldorf, Nov. 21,2019
Just back from Helsinki, the Chief Representative took part in the next economic seminar that Jetro hosted at Medica/Compamed in Düsseldorf; the venue was directly adjacent to the Yokohama Pavilion at the Compamed. About 50 representatives of German and Japanese companies as well as local governments participated in this seminar. Here, too, there was the opportunity to present Yokohama as a business location and to network with the participants.
In the presentation, the participants learned about LIP and ITOP, but also about Yokohama's major advantages over other business locations: cost efficiency, ideal living and housing conditions, a highly qualified workforce and much more. Due to the excellent organization and coordination of Jetro, these seminars were an excellent opportunity to present Yokohama.
