Asia Business Promotion Center is an arm of Toyama New Industry Organization that works to support the overseas advance of companies in Toyama Prefecture and business matching with overseas companies.
The initiative was launched in 1993 with the aim of promoting economic exchange with countries in Northeast Asia (it was initially launched as Toyama Prefecture’s Northwest Pacific Region Trade Center).
Currently, we provide useful trade and investment services, such as information provision and consulting, geared to supporting Toyama companies as they make advances into Asia and other parts of the world.
We also work closely with overseas companies and agencies and have been involved in staging international trade fairs in the prefecture since 1999.
While liaising and cooperating with Toyama Prefecture and Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO), we are striving to become a bridge connecting local companies and overseas companies through a variety of initiatives.
