After two years, Tokyo once again became home to the world’s leading industrial companies as the biennial JIMTOF fair returned to the Japanese capital. Organized by the Japan Machine Tool Builders' Association and Tokyo Big Sight, JIMTOF2016 was held from 17 to 22 November 2016. The scale of JIMTOF2016 was the largest ever, as more than 100,000 professionals including those from the Czech Republic found their way to Tokyo.

Throughout the trade fair, CzechInvest held a series of meetings with potential investors interested in the Czech Republic.

 “This year at JIMTOF, we focused on potential investors that could increase the efficiency of the engineering industry in the Czech Republic, which means that we were targeting companies focused on automation and robotization. The engineering sector in the Czech Republic benefits greatly from its long tradition, but it is necessary to further innovate and attract those who can strengthen our manufacturing base and thereby improve the production rates of our economy,” says Milan Kilík, Business Development manager for Advanced Engineering at CzechInvest.
