The inaugural “Japan – CEE Europe Investment Awards and Summit” will be held 25 April, 2019, in Tokyo.
The organizer is CEE Business Media (the owner of BiznesPolska.pl website) and they expect more than 120 guests, including more than 50 Japanese companies with existing operations in Emerging Europe, or plans to expand in the region. The Awards Gala will be preceded by a full-day Summit of discussion panels covering key investment factors and case-studies of Japanese firms in Central Eastern Europe.
Why such an Investment Summit & Awards event in Japan?
The countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are increasingly recognized as a primary location for investment by Japanese companies, in areas such as automotive, manufacturing, high-tech, business services, and energy. With Poland the strongest location in CEE Europe, other countries such as Hungary, Czech Republic, Romania, and Slovakia are important investment destinations for Japanese firms.
Additionally, in 2018, Japan signed a Economic Partnership Agreement with the European Union, with the Japan-EU EPA to go into effect in 2019.
And lastly, with Brexit on the horizon, many Japanese companies are looking for alternative locations inside the EU.
