Japan External Trade Organization executives call on President Aquino
President Benigno S. Aquino III welcomed several officials of the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) during a courtesy call at Malacañang’s Music Room on Thursday.
JETRO is an independent government agency established to promote trade and investment between Japan and other countries.
The President received JETRO Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Hiroyuki Ishige, JETRO Senior Coordinator Seiya Sukegawa, Executive Director Tomohiro Ando, and Tetsuro Amano, Minister and Deputy Chief of Mission of the Japanese Embassy.
On the Philippine side, present were Department of Trade Undersecretary Nora Terrado, and the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Assistant Secretary Hellen Barber dela Vega, and Special Assistant Marcos Punsalang.
Last year, JETRO lauded the Philippines for outpacing its Southeast Asian neighbors in attracting Japanese investments, citing robust economic development.
The agency projected that the interest of Japanese companies to invest in the country will remain at a “high level” in the coming years.
Established in Osaka in 1951, JETRO assists foreign companies in investing and expanding businesses in Japan.
The agency provides a wide range of services, such as business development support, effective marketing strategy, and relevant business events that would attract new business to invest in Japan.
It also provides information on laws and regulations regarding new business operations to help companies expand their businesses. (PCOO News Release)
