Why such an Investment Summit & Awards event in Japan?
The countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are increasingly recognized as a primary location for investment by Japanese companies, in areas such as automotive, manufacturing, high-tech, business services, and energy. Locations in CEE Europe as Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Romania are important investment destinations for Japanese firms.
Additionally, in 2018, Japan signed a Economic Partnership Agreement with the European Union, with the Japan-EU EPA to go into effect this year in 2019.
