Event Review: Reinventing the Automobile – Autonomous Driving in Germany

14th Japan-Germany Industry Forum

Event: Nov 08, 2018 Location: Tokyo, Japan

On Thursday, November 8, 2018, Germany Trade & Invest held the 14th Japan-Germany Industry Forum (JGIF 2018) in Tokyo.

This year's JGIF focused on Germany’s internationally leading automotive sector and the opportunities available to Japanese investors. Particular attention was paid to the potential opportunities available to Japanese suppliers in Germany. Japanese companies enjoy an innovative international position, particularly in the field of automation, and are greatly interested in the opportunities that the German automotive market has to offer them.

Presentations outlined the general framework conditions for investment in Germany, and German and Japanese companies outlined their current and planned activities in the German automotive market.
After these presentations, the "German Business Lounge" provided an opportunity to establish, maintain and intensify personal contacts to industry experts as well as speakers.

A mini-fair of representatives from the German federal states gave participants the opportunity to meet representatives of Baden-Wurttemberg, Bavaria, Brandenburg, Hessen, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and Thuringia as well as the German National Tourist Board, and to learn more about the latest developments in these regions.

More than 250 attendees from industry, research, and politics participated and joined this exclusive event in Tokyo.
