From 2017 to 2019, EU Gateway | Business Avenues came to the aid of European companies looking at potential opportunities in Japan. This edition of the programme continued the long-standing support that was initiated nearly 30 years ago.
In tandem with the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA), the programme helped relieve the obstacles associated with doing business in a challenging new market.
There were 11 EU-funded market scoping missions organised this time around.
Over 400 European companies in Green Energy Technologies, Healthcare & Medical Technologies, Environment & Water Technologies, Railway Technologies & Services, and Construction & Building Technologies experienced the benefits of the programme first-hand.
