A tall ship will sail into Sutton Harbour on 27 September to commemorate the historic homecoming of The Clove 400 years ago. This re-enactment is the centrepiece of Japan400 Plymouth, an eight-day international event that celebrates the historic and cultural links binding the United Kingdom and Japan.
Japan400 Plymouth reaffirms these links and opens new opportunities for exchange, collaboration and discovery.
As part of the wider Japan400 Plymouth celebration, ‘Doing Business with Japan’ is aimed at supporting and developing inward investment and export opportunities between the South West UK and Japan.
Hosted by Plymouth City Council and Japan400 Plymouth, this event especially welcomes businesses located in the South West UK, which are interested in creating and enhancing Japan-related opportunities.
Specifically, 'Doing Business with Japan' aims to:
- set this in context with the region’s wider economic strategy and local infrastructure developments
- showcase successful examples of inward investment and export opportunities
- highlight critical success factors, for example culture, language, and etiquette for doing business with Japan
- provide a forum for like-minded businesses to network and share experiences
- offer an opportunity for businesses to influence key decision and policy makers
- outline the support available to businesses.
Representatives from UK Trade & Industry, Plymouth Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Japan External Trade Organisation (TBC) will be present to advise and answer your questions.
Location: Royal Western Yacht Club, Queen Anne's Battery, Plymouth PL4 0TW.
