CzechInvest’s Japanese office held a seminar for Japanese potential investors in Tokyo on 16 September 2016. The topic of the event was the current state of Czech investment possibilities and opportunities, primarily in relation to the current situation on the labour market and trends being brought forth by the arising fourth industrial revolution. CzechInvest CEO Karel Kučera made an appearance before the Japanese audience. The one hundred seminar participants were familiarised with information on the developing field of electromobility, possible impacts of Brexit on investments in Europe and the condition of industrial zones, as well as the legal and tax conditions of investing in the Czech Republic.
The event also featured the participation of Mizuho Bank, the third-biggest Japanese bank, with which CzechInvest signed a memorandum on cooperation. Mizuho Bank opened its Central European branch in Vienna last year and is currently intensifying its activities in this region.
