Mission To Japan Bank Of Tokyo–Mitsubishi UFJ And Investe SP Sponsor Brazil Seminars

In their first joint mission to Japan since signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) last October, the Bank of Tokyo–Mitsubishi UFJ (BTMU), its wholly owned subsidiary BTMU Brazil, and Investe São Paulo, the investment promotion agency of São Paulo State, are conducting seminars for about 900 businessmen in Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka, in addition to visiting potential investors.

The MOU agreed to combine the strengths of the three companies to help attract investments from Japanese companies to Brazil and to help Brazilian entrepreneurs wishing to invest in Japan. The first joint event was held in São Paulo in October. The seminars in Japan are being held January 15–17, 2013.

“We will present the highlights about the state of São Paulo and business opportunities, such as public–private partnerships, and make the services provided by Investe SP available to the Japanese businessmen,” says the president of Investe SP, Luciano Almeida, who is participating in the seminars in the three cities.

Adds Toshifumi Murata, president of BTMU Brazil, “The situation with the domestic market in Japan is forcing companies to seek business opportunities abroad, especially in countries with a growing economy. Brazil and São Paulo State in particular offer an excellent market for such investment.”

BTMU’s Head Office in Tokyo is organizing the seminars, which are being held in partnership with the media group Toyo Keizai, a leader in business information.

In addition to the MOU with BTMU and BTMU Brazil, at the end of last year, Investe SP entered into an agreement with JETRO, the Japan External Trade Organization, and sent a representative to Japan, who spent two months collaborating with JETRO in Tokyo. The agreement aims to promote the exchange of experiences, techniques, business culture, and best practices between the agencies — which complements the intent behind the MOU with BTMU.
