The EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation is a non-profit organization established by the European Commission and the Japanese government to support the enhancement of industrial, trade, and economic relations between the EU and Japan. The centre provides a range of services and programs, such as market intelligence, business matching, and training, to promote business collaboration and investment between the two regions. Additionally, the Business Round Table (BRT) is a forum organized by the EU-Japan Centre that brings together European and Japanese business leaders to discuss key issues and opportunities in their respective markets. The BRT provides a valuable platform for networking, sharing knowledge, and shaping the direction of EU-Japan business relations.
