Sep 12, 2016

On June 28, 2016 JETRO held a seminar titled Updated Risk Management for Overseas Business Development - Examples and Countermeasures from the Perspective of Foreign Affiliates, inviting speakers from foreign-affiliated companies. The seminar was joined by 52 attendees from Japanese companies considering entering overseas markets or those which have already established a presence abroad.
In the first session, speakers from four foreign-affiliated companies specializing in risk management talked about risks and necessary countermeasures regarding overseas business development, providing information and illustrative examples. Speeches included a wide scope of topics from risks in information security and unauthorized computer access to terrorism and kidnapping. In the second session reserved for networking, an active exchange among foreign-affiliates and Japanese companies was seen. Attendees gave positive feedback about the seminar, including one attendee who said, “Hearing about the unique services of foreign-affiliated companies became a good opportunity to review my own company’s risk management.”
