Japan Pavilion, twice larger than last year, in Tehran International Industry Exhibition

Following last year’s participation, which was the first in 14 years, JETRO organized the Japan Pavilion at the Tehran International Industry Exhibition with 18 exhibitors in an area twice as large to promote their products and technologies. Japanese staff at the pavilion advertised Japan with actual machines and product samples, which consequently raised interest in and expectations for Japanese products.
