Dear Ladies and Gentleman,
As Germany and Japan share common values and mindsets, it is worth further fostering German-Japanese relations, especially during challenging times in world politics.
Building on the successes of the launch event and the follow-up event, it is our sincere pleasure to invite you to the 3rd German-Japanese Business Dialogue. The Dialogue will help to strengthen ties between the business and political spheres and to continue promoting an ever closer economic and political cooperation between Germany and Japan.
Both Germany and Japan are high-tech nations with highly innovative products that have gained unique reputations in global markets, which was well-demonstrated at CeBIT 2017 with technologies showcased by the Partner Country Japan. It was also an occasion which highlighted that Germany and Japan have not only maintained a close economic and value partnership for many years, but also share common social challenges – in particular the demographic shift from ageing populations and low birth rates and technological transformation driven by digitalization. With the 3rd German-Japanese Business Dialogue we hope to promote cooperation in key areas for our prosperity and competitiveness, such as free trade, digitalization, Industry 4.0 and Society 5.0, and to consider how such cooperation could further contribute to the future of Europe and the world.
We look forward to an evening full of exciting conversations and a lively and inspiring exchange.
