On 20 November this year, the ANZCCJ in association with the Japan New Zealand Business Council (JNZBC) and the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) hosted the next event in the SME Support Program series in Osaka, prior to the welcome reception for the JNZBC Annual Joint Conference.
This was the first time an SME Support Program event was held in Osaka, and marked the two year anniversary of the program.
ANZCCJ SME Support Event Series aims to connect Japanese businesses with little or no international experience with Australian and New Zealand executives, businesses and organisations with substantial experience, expertise and know-how in international business, trade and investment.
As with past events in this series, participants learnt from fellow SMEs doing Japan-New Zealand business: what has worked well, what has been challenging, and what they would like to see done differently to make things better for SMEs in building the relationship between New Zealand and Japan.
Six companies presented at the event: Ecostore, PGG Wrightson Wool, and Tekron International from New Zealand; and Ikemu, Osawa Wines, and Sunnyside International School from Japan.To learn more about the SME Support Program visit our website.
