Since January 2021, the UK has a new Free Trade Agreement with Japan, the world’s third largest economy, opening even more opportunities for UK companies to forge partnerships and generate new business in this dynamic Asian country.
Marking this exciting new chapter in trading relations between the UK and Japan, the Department for International Trade is delighted to announce a series of business focused UK-Japan Trade Missions, to be run over the Spring which we would be delighted for you to be a part of.
On the 2nd of March 2021, the Minister for Exports, Graham Stuart, will launch the ‘Partnering with Japan – Spring ’21 Free Trade Agreement Series’. The 90-minute launch event will not only provide expert insight into the Japanese market and how the Free Trade Agreement can benefit business, but participants will be able to develop their knowledge on how to succeed in the Japanese market with the Export Academy and Export to Japan.
To get involved and join our launch event, businesses and organisations can sign up here to this free event which will include sessions with the Minister, experts in Japan and leading figures from UK companies.
And this is only the beginning, throughout this three-month Spring mission series, a wide variety of events will be on offer; from webinars and business-to-business roundtables to Q&A sessions – with sector, regional and investment events all taking place.
These events have been specifically designed to inspire and support companies to export with Japan. In the coming days and weeks our event calendar will be updated with the events taking place as part of this exciting and ambitious series – in the meantime please do check regularly to see what is on offer here.
