Shizuoka Succession Forum to be Held

For collaboration between Local Vitalization Cooperators and Business Succession Networks

June 13, 2018

The Small and Medium Enterprise Agency

On June 29 (Fri.), 2018, a forum tilted “Shizuoka Succession Forum - For collaboration between Local Vitalization Cooperators and Business Succession Networks -” will be held at Hotel Century Shizuoka.
This will be a kickoff event celebrating collaboration between these networks.

1. Outline of the Business Succession Networks

The Small and Medium Enterprise Agency (SMEA) is engaging in efforts for the establishment of networks called “Business Succession Networks” aiming at raising awareness of the need for smooth business succession among SMEs and small enterprises. SMEA has established 43 networks across Japan as of today.
In addition, SMEA established support centers for smooth business succession in all 47 prefectures and has been offering SMEs consultation services regarding company or business transfers to third parties and opportunities for business matching with other companies.

2. Collaboration with a MIC project

As part of these efforts, SMEA will collaborate its related measures with a measure conducted by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) (i.e., the Local Vitalization Cooperators project for stimulating people’s mobility from urban to rural areas). Through this collaboration, for the first time, SMEA will conduct business matching events between participants in the Local Vitalization Cooperators project who are interested in business succession and managers of SMEs that are facing difficulties in finding successors for their business.
