【JETRO】 Notice of 「Invest Japan Hotline」
Nov 28, 2013
JETRO has established an 「Invest Japan Hotline」 that provides consultation and accepts regulatory reform requests from foreign companies regarding investing in Japan.
In June 2013, the Japanese government formulated the “Japan Revitalization Strategy,” which articulates “Drastically strengthening the government’s capability for attracting foreign companies and its support framework.” The Strategy calls on JETRO to put this into practice by “enhancing JETRO’s comprehensive support system for foreign enterprises.”
When an inquiry is made through the hotline, JETRO will, when necessary, arrange meetings with the relevant authorities. In principal, a JETRO representative will escort the foreign company and provide language support during the consultation with the relevant authorities.
When requests regarding regulatory reforms are made through the hotline, JETRO will, when necessary, receive verification from the relevant authorities and submit requests for regulatory reforms to the Cabinet Office and METI, and ask the relevant authorities to consider possibilities of reform.
