With a population over 8 million, NSW is Australia's most populous state and the country’s economic powerhouse. Japan is the second largest trading partner for NSW, being the first for exports from NSW and third for imports to NSW (2018-2019*). Sydney, the state capital, is also Australia's most populous city, where more than 200 Japanese businesses** operate, collaborate with Australian firms, and contribute to regional jobs and creating innovation.

As part of the Department of Enterprise, Investment and Trade, it helps attract international investment to NSW and drive trade with key markets around the world, including Japan.

The newly opened North Asia Office in Tokyo will play a key role in building upon the already strong business and people-to-people links between NSW and North Asia (Japan and Korea) in the areas including resources and energy, food and agriculture, infrastructure, manufacturing, property development, ICT, finance, healthcare, professional services, research and education, and tourism.

Upon establishing its Japanese base, JETRO's Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) lent temporary office space (IBSC Tokyo), and also played an active role in helping NSW with the establishment of its new office in Tokyo.
