Japan is currently the UK’s 14th largest market, with 2023 UK-Japan trade valued at £27.6 million.

As the world’s 3rd third largest economy, Japan with the stability of its market, its large, wealthy, and highly educated consumer base, and the good business ethics of Japanese companies make it an attractive trading market for UK businesses.

This webinar will provide delegates with:

  • A brief overview on trading with Japan
  • Opportunities open to UK Business
  • A UK traders prospective
  • Information on Expo 2025, Osaka, Japan

There will be an opportunity for delegates attending to submit questions prior to the webinar or on the day.
