About the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO)
JETRO is a non-profit organization that provides business support services to companies expanding to Japan. With the support of JETRO's dedicated staff, clients can incorporate their business; receive visa, immigration, and HR support; find dedicated office space; identify local government subsidies; get tailored market studies; and more.
Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO's core focus in the 21st century has shifted to promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and helping small to medium-sized Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.
JETRO is organized and managed by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), a ministry of the Japanese Government that focuses on economic & industrial development through innovation, technology, and foreign investment.
