The Chamber of Commerce of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, in close cooperation with the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Finance, the Luxembourg Embassy to Japan and the Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office in Tokyo will be organising a multi-sectoral mission to Japan. The delegation will be led by H.E. Mr. Etienne Schneider, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy, H.E. Mr. Pierre Gramegna, Minister of Finance and H.E. Mrs. Francine Closener, Secretary of State of the Economy. It will take place from November 26th to December 1st, 2017.
The programme of the mission will include sectoral workshops, official receptions, networking events, company visits and pre-arranged individual business meetings with Japanese companies upon request. The mission is open to all sectors of activity. Nevertheless, a special focus will be put on audiovisual production (animation), automotive, ICT, logistics, space, sustainable finance and tourism. Please note that for companies interested in visiting Taiwan, the mission can also be extended in order to attend the Luxembourg-Taiwan Business Council that will take place in Taiwan (with a focus on similar sectors, exempting audiovisual production). A separate invitation and programme will follow.
Interested companies are kindly requested to duly complete the online registration form (including a draft programme) no later than September 1st. This is very important, especially for companies requesting pre-arranged individual business meetings. After this date, business meetings cannot be guaranteed. The cancellation fee will be 200 €.
In order to prepare your participation, the Chamber of Commerce of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will be organising a country seminar in its premises in Luxembourg-Kirchberg on Thursday September 21st, 2017. The programme and online registration form for the country seminar are available here. Companies that are interested in knowing more about Japan but do not intend to participate in the mission are also welcome to participate in the country seminar.
