Virtual Seminar for Japanese and Finnish corporations in the Manufacturing Sector. The event was organized by Business Finland and the Embassy of Finland in Tokyo, in collaboration with JETRO.

Webcast recording

The fourth industrial revolution is transforming manufacturing industries exceptionally. It is not only due to increasing automation but also new models of operation where data plays an increasingly central role enabling, for example, end-to-end supply chain management. This enables many new business models such as distributed manufacturing.

At the same time, the manufacturing industry is looking for ways to respond to the climate change. Sustainable development contains both environmental and economic goals.

The aim of the event was to highlight business opportunities in Finland for Japanese corporations, and to showcase the developments in Smart and Sustainable Manufacturing in Finland: companies, development work, today’s solutions and services, and products available in this area.
