Latest Updates"Tokushima" Seminar on the Promotion of Foreign Investment in Tokushima (February 8th)

Jan 15, 2016

Tokushima has been working hard towards the creation of industrial clusters unique to the region. In particular, this cluster is characterized by the creation of a new industry focusing on the use of high-functioning materials such as cellulose nanofiber (CNF), and by the fact that Tokushima is one of the world’s largest production base for LED and has the best broadband environment in the nation.
Through this seminar, we hope to introduce the initiatives and excellent business environment that Tokushima has to offer.
At the networking reception following the seminar, we will be serving an array of dishes cooked with our famous “Tokushima Brand” agricultural and fishery products. We hope you will be able to enjoy the tastes of Tokushima while creating new business connections.
We look forward to seeing you at our seminar.
