J-GoodTech Biz Match 2018

Opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses to discover overseas entry points

Structures for strengthening economic ties that are spreading worldwide are bringing a wave of significant change and likely to impact company business environments. Successive changes are developing that not only include reducing and removing obstacles to service trade and tariffs, but also creating new rules in competition policy, protection of intellectual property, human mobility, and investment.

Against this backdrop, Japanese companies are showing interest in the state of Texas, which has excellent infrastructure and manpower in addition to a variety of tax breaks. Texas is being chosen by many Japanese-affiliated companies as a base for business in North America.

J-GoodTech Biz Match (BM) 2018 is a project offering opportunities to match American companies interested in Japanese companies to Japanese companies interested in Texas companies.

Support is provided through a website and missions to the US by Japanese companies for negotiations.
