Here you will find information on the 5th German-Japanese Business Dialogue, which takes place in the residence of the Japanese ambassador on 4 March 2020.
Dear Ladies and Gentleman,
This year the Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games as well as the Asia-Pacific Conference of German Business (APK) will take place in Tokyo. We are delighted to invite you to the 5th German-Japanese Business Dialogue on March 4, 2020 at the Residence of the Japanese Ambassador in Berlin in the run-up to these major events.
As Germany and Japan share common values and mindsets, it is worth fostering the German-Japanese relations further, especially during challenging times in world politics.
Both countries also face similar challenges such as demographic change due to an ageing society and the realignment of traditional industries towards the digital revolution. Developing innovative solutions to these challenges will be essential to secure our future prosperity and competitiveness. Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, as a showcase of innovation and technology, will offer a proper occasion for the relevant discussions. Key areas such as hydrogen applications, autonomous driving, healthcare and high speed networks (5G), integrated into the "Society 5.0" initiative, have enormous potential to boost the German-Japanese economic cooperation in the future.
We promote cross-border cooperation in future-oriented areas through the well-established format of the German-Japanese Business Dialogue. We offer German and Japanese companies a top-class platform on which they can discuss opportunities for future cooperation and exchange with high-ranking decision-makers from politics.
We look forward to an evening full of exciting conversations and a lively and inspiring exchange with you!
