[2015-02-15] – JETRO Amsterdam, DUJAT and NCH joint seminar ’Invest in Japan’
JETRO Amsterdam, DUJAT and NCH joint seminar ’Invest in Japan’.
Japan is since decades known for its quality products that are exported all over the world. Japanese companies are also very well present all over the world through own local manufacturing and trading companies, R&D centres and logistic operations.
However, investing in Japan itself can be also very rewarding – and there are great examples to proof this.
At this seminar “Invest in Japan”, organized by JETRO, DUJAT and NCH, we will inform you on the merits of having your company physically present at one of the most sophisticated and affluent societies in the world, and close to world-class manufacturing facilities and R&D centres.
