Japan is one of the largest economies in the world, and both the public and private sectors are increasingly focusing on green technologies. Japanese multinational companies are also actively investing in the field, including several projects in Finland such as the Metsä Group – Itochu cooperation for new wood-based textiles.

Business Finland is organizing a session for Finnish companies to get familiar with the Japanese bio and circular economy markets on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 from 09:00 – 10:00 (EET) based on a study made by our advisor Inka-Liisa Häkälä in Tokyo.

If your company is interested in the Japanese market or in investments, this is a perfect chance to get a general overview on the current market situation and opportunities.

The overview is divided into three main subjects: packaging, textile and wooden construction.

If your product or solution is related to any of these industries, we can strongly recommend that you join this session to map your company’s potential!
