With the objective to promote and support EU-Japan business cooperation in and with ASEAN, the EU-Japan Centre launched the one-year virtual platform “EU-Japan Business Matchmaking with Vietnam” on 7 March 2022. This platform will support the connection between EU, Japanese and Vietnamese companies and organisations interested in trilateral business cooperation for joint projects in Vietnam. The platform targets four priority business areas: infrastructure, manufacturing, smart cities, and green technology.
On 7 March 2022, the EU-Japan Centre organised a kick-off webinar in cooperation with the French and German Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Japan and Vietnam.
On 8-9 March 2022, with the support of Enterprise Europe Network partners and Flanders Investment & Trade, the EU-Japan Centre organised a 2-day virtual business matchmaking event that provided 70 representatives of companies, clusters, and business associations with the opportunity to meet potential business partners virtually. The matchmaking was a success, with feedback showing that half of the meetings could result in "possible cooperation".
Following this kick-off event, the virtual platform “EU-Japan Business Matchmaking with Vietnam” remains open to EU, Japanese and Vietnamese companies interested in tripartite business cooperation in Vietnam. Stay tuned for future events on this platform!
