ABOUT THE EVENT

Belgium is one of the leading countries in the field of agri-tech and innovation in this sector. Belgium offers further investment opportunities in this field and the cooperation between Japan and Belgium can still be intensified further. In collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF), the Embassy of Belgium in Tokyo, AWEX and FIT organize this seminar to present the opportunities for collaborations between Japan and Belgium on agri-tech. We invite speakers from companies and organisations both in Japan and Belgium to present the most recent developments and opportunities in this sector.
