Webinar 69: Automobile and Transport Cluster Mapping and Industry

17-05-16 | 10:30 h - 11:30 h

How can EU SMEs become suppliers to the Automobile and Transport Industry in Japan?

Traditionally suppliers to Japan’s automobile and transport industries have been domestic companies, however, this is changing, and there are new opportunities for small and medium sized EU companies to enter this market. Since those industries are mostly located in some kind of clusters, it is important to understand the location of those clusters and what opportunities each type of cluster can provide before entering the market. In this webinar we looked at the most important clusters in each of the industries, including automobile, buses, trucks, trains, ships and aerospace.

The webinar was targeted to EU companies seeking to become suppliers to Japanese manufacturers in the automobile and transport industry.
