You are invited to participate in a delegation to Japan, headed by Mr Mikael Damberg, the Swedish Minister for Enterprise and Innovation. The theme of the delegation is “Innovative ICT and Life Science” and it is organised by Business Sweden and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Ministry for Enterprise and Innovation and the Embassy of Sweden in Tokyo.
As world technology leaders, both Sweden and Japan are constantly working on the next generation innovations providing smarter as well as more cost effective solutions in many areas. Equally so, both countries place the greatest emphasis on further innovation as a basis for global success for its industry as well as driving society forward.
While Japan and Sweden already today has an extensive trade relationship, there is still a huge untapped potential to increase trade further. The delegation aims to help strengthen existing business relations and provide new such opportunities for collaboration between Sweden and Japan.
Both ICT and Life Science are core industries in Sweden and Japan, offering many opportunities for increased collaboration on both public and private level.
The ICT sector is Japan’s largest industry by contribution to GDP and has many famous large ICT companies. Both the Japanese government and private companies realize the importance of, and continue to seek, unconventional, innovative ideas in this area while Sweden is recognized to be one of the most prolific technology hubs (per capita basis).
Japan’s health care sector is under increased financial pressure from its aging society. There is high interest and focus on improving the cost efficiency of this sector through e.g. changes to the care processes (incl preventive care), technological improvements of both medical treatments and administration etc. Sweden is well positioned and recognized as a leader in this field.
The delegation aims to be an important stepping stone towards both short and long term business goals between Swedish and Japanese parties.
