UK-Japan Trade – An Update: Sue Kinoshita, British Embassy in Tokyo

This Japan Society Business Lecture will start with a brief presentation by Jun Arima of JETRO on the recovery of business and trade in Japan from the March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.

Sue Kinoshita, Director of Trade and Investment at the British Embassy in Tokyo, will then give an update on the health of UK-Japan trade. She will cover the latest trends and opportunities as well as some of the regulatory, policy and governance considerations. They will then both be joined by representatives of UKTI and the event will conclude with a joint discussion and audience questions.

This event will be of particular interest to UK companies looking to develop their business in the Japanese market and to Japanese companies seeking British government support for their operations in the UK.

After a short break for tea and biscuits, the panel will divide and, with other colleagues, conduct workshops and one-to-one discussions with companies or individuals who have concerns or issues to raise, either privately or in groups.
