Latest UpdatesSHIZUOKA: Shizuoka Investment Seminar for foreign affiliates Information on the allures of Shizuoka - Japan’s foremost “Manufacturing Prefecture” (October 26)

Sep 19, 2017

For those interested in either "secondary investments in manufacturing" or the "establishment of new bases" this seminar is a must-see.
Due to its temperate climate and varied topography, Shizuoka Prefecture is chosen as a site for business expansion by a wide range of companies - particularly manufacturers - in industries related to medicine and health, food and automobiles. The prefecture offers a privileged business environment, and the number of factories and distribution centers of foreign companies is in fact among the highest within the country.
In this seminar, case studies of foreign-affiliated companies that have established a presence in Shizuoka and the industrial support measures that the prefecture offers foreign-affiliated companies and commerce groups from around the capital region will be introduced.
Don’t miss this opportunity for expanding your business. We look forward to welcoming you.
