Helping UK Companies Succeed in the Japanese Market

This month, I would like to welcome you to a new website we have launched for UK companies looking to do business in Japan - 
A not-for-profit initiative with British Airways, the British Chamber of Commerce Japan and Business Link Japan, Export to Japan brings you current market opportunities, recent success stories, expert business advice, upcoming events and a network of 27 business partners. This two-minute video  is a handy introduction to what the site has to offer. 
Sign-up is free and takes about a minute giving you access to additional benefits such as regular updates and insights reserved for UK companies. Don’t just take my word for it – hear what William Hague and Willie Walsh have to say. 
You are receiving this newsletter because you have previously expressed an interest in Japan with UK Trade & Investment. You can unsubscribe below if it is not what you are looking for. We welcome feedback.
