Japan Business Day – DGA Connect

In collaboration with RVO (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland) and the Dutch embassy in Tokyo, Dutch Games Association is organising the Japan Business Day. Join us together with the Japanese Head of Economy, the Agriculture Council and the Innovation Council for an afternoon focused on doing business in- and with Japan.

The Japanese market is not commonly known to many companies due the physical and cultural distance, the many tariff and non-tariff trade barriers and the general high cost of traveling to Japan when exploring business trips and opportunities.

After being overshadowed by the Chinese market in recent years the Japanese economy is growing and with the Olympic Games in 2020 and the growth in tourism to Japan (thanks to a low Yen and a targeted publicity campaign by the Japanese government) the Japanese market is in the spotlight once again. With renewed trade agreements such as the free trade agreement between the EU and Japan (Economic Partnership Agreement), and the Trans Pacific Partnership with the 11 countries in the region (TPP-11) there are plenty of lucrative opportunities in Japan and there are many corporate projects set up in the field of technology and innovation that can generate economic spin-offs.
