Stay up to date with Japanese public sector procurement

Will your company build the new website for Japan’s National Personnel Authority, or will your technology contribute to a scientific breakthrough at RIKEN - Institute of Physical and Chemical Research? 

For EU companies it can be a challenge to obtain an insight into the activities of the public sector in Japan. Information available in English is limited and it is often hard to find more details about competitive tenders or projects offered by Japanese government organizations in order to assess whether it is a potential business opportunity. 
The Japan Tax & Public Procurement (JTPP) Helpdesk publishes a weekly selection of tenders (Weekly Digest) with goods and services that Japanese organizations are planning to buy. With this Digest, the JTPP Helpdesk aims to provide more detailed information than what is published on Japan’s English language procurement website managed by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO). 

Whenever publicly available, the digest provides direct links to specifications, email addresses and information about other deadlines and other details usually not mentioned in English announcements.  The selection is provided in a practical Excel format that allows subscribers to easily filter and search for opportunities of their interest. 

JTPP Helpdesk’s Digest is a free service available to companies and non-profit trade promotion organizations based in the EU, and is sent out every Monday by email. In addition to receiving the digest, you can also contact the JTPP Helpdesk for further assistance and information on specific opportunities found in the selection.
