Japan drawing interest from Polish firms

Published: January 12, 2024

The first meeting in a training series on the Japanese market had an impressive turnout of 300 people.

Over 300 entrepreneurs and representatives of Polish business support institutions participated in the inaugural seminar of the training series titled “An Opportunity to Develop Your Business in Japan - Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai”. The event was organised by the PAIH Expo Team.

During the meeting, participants received insights into developing cooperation with Japanese partners, learnt the details of the Economic Programme and Poland’s Partner Programme for Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, and got valuable advice on instruments supporting Polish businesses in relation to the Expo.

Experts from the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, the PAIH Foreign Trade Office in Tokyo, the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) in Warsaw, the Ministry of Development and Technology, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development, the National Agriculture Support Centre, and the Polish Chamber of Commerce in Japan (PCCIJ) shared their knowledge and experience. During the panel discussion, representatives from Comarch, RTB House, Seedia City, Virtud, and Spółdzielnia Pokój talked about their experiences in collaborating with Japanese partners and the intricacies of the Japanese market.

The robust attendance underscores Polish entrepreneurs’ readiness for international expansion, even into distant and challenging markets like Japan.

The high attendance at this first, inaugural seminar, more than 300 in-person and online participants, proves that our activities are needed, there is interested audience, and Polish entrepreneurs are ready to expand abroad, including to the Japanese market. Importantly, Polish entrepreneurs realise that expansion into foreign markets requires adequate preparation, especially when it comes to the demanding Japanese market. We are glad that entrepreneurs trust us and turn to the Expo Team at the Polish Investment and Trade Agency when planning and preparing for foreign expansion. The inaugural seminar of this training series is just one among several initiatives planned and implemented under the Economic Programme for Poland’s engagement in Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai. I wholeheartedly urge Polish entrepreneurs to delve into the particulars and extend an invitation to join us, stated Eliza Klonowska-Siwak, Deputy Commissioner General of the Polish Section at Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai.

Additional events, a total of six webinars and a concluding seminar, are scheduled throughout the year.
