Benefits of joining the Mission

TopWhy Participate in the Mission?

Having your meetings set up with the right people, your sales pitch fine-tuned, a clearly laid out itinerary with precise travel instructions and the use of reliable interpreters all help to reduce the stress involved in your first interactions with potential clients.

The most valuable support UKTI can provide is the utilisation of its extensive network of Japanese industry insiders. Through these connections, business-to-business meetings with the right contact for your product or service are easily facilitated. UKTI’s dedicated, experienced and well-connected team in the UK and Japan is entirely focused on giving UK companies this type of support.

Mission participants will benefit from bespoke support both in the UK and Japan. In advance of the mission, we will discuss your requirements and help you ensure you have prepared adequately. The team in Japan will make regular contact during the process of your programme arrangement so that you arrive in Japan with a clear itinerary and clear objectives. After the mission, we will help you to follow up on your meetings and can also advise you on your next steps.

  • Pre-Mission activity in the UK, to discuss your requirements and to help you prepare adequately
