Japanese explore DWC opportunities
Dubai, June 25, 2013
A delegation from Japan External Trade Organization (Jetro) visited Dubai World Central, an aerotropolis, to take a closer look at its infrastructure and facilities.
The Japanese delegation explored the opportunities available to its companies seeking to establish and expand their business operations in the region.
The visit is in line with DWC’s strategy of attracting leading international companies to commence operations from the aerotropolis and take advantage of the infrastructure to both strengthen its presence in the country and enter new markets in the region, said a statement.
Hiroki Matsumoto, managing director, Jetro-Mena, said: “The trade relations between the UAE and Japan have been witnessing steady growth over the years, with the value of Japan’s trade with the UAE reaching $52.9 billion in 2012. In particular, Japan’s automotive industry trade in the GCC countries has been thriving and we are now focused on light industries, especially food and healthcare products.”
DWC sent a mission to Japan earlier this year to meet several key organisations in Tokyo and Kyoto, said the statement.
Japanese companies, especially from the trade, logistics, food and healthcare sectors, can significantly benefit from the multi-modal logistics platform and the temperature-controlled facilities available at DWC, it said. - TradeArabia News Service
