Saving the Best for Last: The Automotive Workshop Ends a Year Rich in Seminars for Japanese Investors.

The second half of the year for Invest in Bavaria's Japan Desk was characterised by workshops on various current topics. No surprise then that probably Bavaria's most important industry was last on the agenda: the automobile industry.

On 16th November 2015, Invest in Bavaria, in cooperation with the Mizuho Bank Ltd., invited Japanese company representatives to the premises at Prinzregentenstraße 22.
The event was also the opening of a long-standing collaboration between Invest in Bavaria and the Mizuho Bank, which was affirmed this year with a memorandum of understanding.

Two speakers from Mizuho Bank's Mizuho Research Institute department, Mr. Yasuo Yamamoto, Chief Representative London Office and Mr. Katsuyuki Hachiya, Senior Manager Industry Research Division Tokyo, came especially from the UK and Japan to participate in the exchange with their compatriots on the current situation of the automobile sector in Germany.

The guests were able to subsequently discuss what they had heard in a relaxed environment while enjoying a mix of Bavarian, Japanese and Italian delicacies. With stomachs and minds filled to the brim, we concluded the evening and with it a year of workshops for Japanese companies. But our goal remains clear: Satisfied investors bring more companies to Bavaria!

The Invest in Bavaria Japan Desk extends many thanks for a successful year, wishes you happy holidays and all the best for a new year filled with Bavarian-Japanese cooperation and events!
