October 30, 2019
On December 9, 2019, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) will hold a seminar bringing together representatives of mid-ranking Japanese companies developing successful business overseas and those of overseas companies having made significant achievements in global business activities. The seminar will discuss the roles of mid-ranking companies and business opportunities for expanding business overseas. It will also provide participants with opportunities to learn domestic and overseas trends and new trends as well as approaches to refining future overseas business development strategies, while using case examples of successful and failed businesses as references. In addition, it will explain measures for supporting mid-ranking companies in succeeding in M&A with regional SMEs by taking advantage of externally raised capital, e.g., funds. METI is looking forward to seeing many business operators of mid-ranking companies and SMEs participating in the seminar.
