The Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) is a government-related organization promoting mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO’s core focus in the 21st century has shifted toward promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and helping small to medium size Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.
As one of our activities, we offer foreign investors with abundant information on all aspects of doing business in Japan, by providing expert consultation and offering free temporary office space in major business areas across the country. In terms of promoting inward FDI, we have placed a special emphasis on high value-added functions, in which, Japan offers an advantage, such as R&D facilities and regional headquarters which can act as a gateway to an emerging Asia. JETRO has supported more than 10,000 foreign companies with their expansion in the Japanese market, and has successfully brought in the investment of over 1,000 of those companies.
To strengthen economic ties between Japan and other countries, JETRO is conducting policy research and making efforts to formulate global economic partnerships. Placing an emphasis on relations with growing emerging countries, JETRO is also deeply involved in fostering infrastructure development in Asia and supporting business development in Africa.
In carrying out these operations, we are relying even more heavily on our global network of offices spanning JETRO Tokyo headquarters, JETRO Osaka, the Institute of Developing Economies (IDE-JETRO), 37 offices in Japan and more than 70 overseas.
We are expanding efforts to boost trade, investment and economic cooperation between Japan and the rest of the world, and working to ensure that Japan remains a reliable economic partner in the global economy.
