Latest UpdatesTokushima Business Forum in Tokyo for Business Location

Oct 14, 2015

Tokushima Prefecture is building up its concentration of LED and information and communication industries, as well as the number of corporate satellite offices operating in the prefecture. It is doing this by tapping into its two iconic sources of growth: its position as one of the world’s largest production bases of LED lights and its distinction as the most advanced environment for optical broadband communication in Japan.
Further, infrastructural conditions for locating in the prefecture will be largely improved through the coming connection of the Honshi Expressway and Tokushima Expressway.
This forum will be an excellent opportunity for you to learn about these advantages Tokushima posses as a location as well as the public support offered to transplanted companies. We have speakers with acutal experience doing business in the prefecture, and they will share their experiences with you.
